VOICES Seeks Submissions for 2023 Indianapolis Youth Poet Laureate Competition

   

Are you the next Indianapolis Youth Poet Laureate? Applications are open to:

– Youth who are 13-19 years old and live in Indiana are eligible to apply.
– To apply, youth must submit five poems and a resume highlighting leadership and civic or community engagement by 9/30/2022!

The Indiana Youth Poet Laureate winner will then get the chance to compete for the Midwest Regional Youth Poet Laureate Ambassador title and the National Youth Poet Laureate title.

This year, Indianapolis’ own Alyssa Gaines was named National Youth Poet Laureate! You could be next! Previous winners have led workshops for youth, performed at the Kennedy Center and Library of Congress in D.C., and been published by Carnegie Hall, and various other notable publications.

If you have any questions, please email the Director of Indiana YPL, Lauren Marie Hall Riggins (LHall@VOICEScorp.org).
