A Winner Is Announced

National Poetry Month Poster 2019

On December 8, 2018 I posted an announcement from the American Academy of Poets about the first-ever National Poetry Contest for Students.

The winner was announced a few days ago. Julia Wang is in tenth grade at Lynbrook High School, San Jose, California.

You may read about the contest, Wang's artistic statement about the poster, the judges and also see the poster here. You can request one, too.

As I said before, I think this was a difficult choice or at least it would have been for me.

I ordered one but my past experience with poster offers from the American Academy of Poets for National Poetry Month is mixed. Sometimes I get one; most often I don't. Still I think it is always worth the try--envelope and stamp free although there is an environmental cost.
