Open to those 18 and younger, the Young Pegasus Poetry Competition is the longest-running youth poetry event in the country.
From more than 2,200 poems submitted in this year’s contest, the judges deemed more than 50 to be worthy of publication in the annual Young Pegasus Anthology.
Previous Young Pegasus poets have included Jay Brandon, Henry Cisneros, Naomi Shihab Nye and State District Court Judge Michael Mery.
