Open to Monroe County kids & teens only.

Robert Frost Poetry Contest for kids (6-12) and teens (13-18) animation

Kids & teens: have you submitted your poem for the Robert Frost Poetry Contest? Submit a poem for a chance to win a cash prize!

In celebration of National Poetry Month in April, and Robert Frost (1874-1963), The Studios is delighted to host the Annual Children and Teen Poetry Contest each year. National Poetry Month is a worldwide celebration that highlights poetry’s vital place in our culture. The Florida Keys have a special connection with Robert Frost, who won four Pulitzer Prizes for his poetry, and wintered many years at the garden cottage of the Heritage House in Key West.

Six awards (1st, 2nd & 3rd place & three honorable mentions) will be presented in each age group. Winners will be recognized with cash awards (First Place $150; Second Place $75; Third Place $50) at a public ceremony in May.

Made possible by the Jeane and Jessie Porter Memorial Fund
