MPM Poetry Competition

We’d like to offer our congratulations to the winners of the 2017-2018 Student Poetry Competition!

Thank you to all the teachers who submitted their students’ writing this year. Thanks are due, as well, to Wisconsin Poet Laureate Karla Huston for attending the winners’ reading on May 19, 2018 and helping us to celebrate the program’s 10th anniversary.

We’re looking forward to the 11th annual Student Poetry Competition next year, when we’ll be partnering with the Milwaukee Public Library as part of a three-year, grant-funded project designed to introduce poetry programming into the Milwaukee regional community.

Details for the 2019 competition are yet to be finalized, but keep an eye on this page for more information around the start of the 2018-2019 school year!
