The Press 13th annual Student Poetry Project

Friday, April 27, 2018 by Paul Willistein in Focus

To commemorate “National Poetry Month” in April, the Lehigh Valley Press presents the 13th annual Student Poetry Project.

Please see the Focus pages on the Press web sites for poems selected in the Elementary School, Middle School and High School categories.

Students whose poems are published with their photos read their poems and were interviewed on the April 16 broadcast of “Lehigh Valley Arts Salon” on WDIY, 88.1,, Lehigh Valley Public Radio and NPR affiliate. The broadcast is available as a podcast on the WDIY web site.

The Student Poetry Project adjudication committee met March 28 to read more than 100 poems submitted by students from the Lehigh Valley region.

The Press Student Poetry Project received a 2018 Professional Keystone Press Award.

The Lehigh Valley Press thanks the students who entered their poems, as well as the school teachers, parents and guardians who encouraged them.
