The Academy of American Poets has announced the thirteen finalists of the 2022 National Poetry Month Poster Contest for Students.

There were 170 students who responded to the open call for submissions, and thirteen students from seven different states were named finalists. One of the finalists is from Minnesota. Congratulations!

The winning student will be announced in January 2022 and will receive $1,000 in cash and prizes. The runner-up will receive $250. The winning students will be selected by poet Nikki Grimes and illustrator Rafael Lopez

The announcement may be read here and includes the artwork. One of the things I most enjoyed in viewing them was the unique response by each student to the challenge set by the Academy.
