The winning poets receive a KidsPost T-shirt as well as a National Poetry Month poster. They also get a copy of the book “Poem in Your Pocket for Young Poets,” courtesy of the Academy of American Poets, the group that started National Poetry Month in 1996. Winning poets who live in the Washington area also received tickets to “The Magic Finger” at Imagination Stage in Bethesda.

You can hear KidsPost’s winning poets recite their works at a reading next month at Politics & Prose Bookstore. Mark your calendars, and come out to support these amazing young people.
