National Student Poets Program

National Student Poets Program logoThe National Student Poets Program draws on the expertise of each partner, reflecting the national imprimatur of the President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities, IMLS’s community-based network of libraries and museums that will link the national student poets with audiences and resources in their neighborhoods, and the Alliance’s long-standing work with educators and creative teens through the prestigious Scholastic Art & Writing Awards.

Each year, the five National Student Poets will be chosen from a pool of outstanding writers, grades 9-11, who have received a national Scholastic Art & Writing Award for poetry. A national panel of literary luminaries will evaluate and select the National Student Poets.
