The National Student Poets Program returns to the National Book Festival and will confer the nation’s highest honor for youth poets presenting original work. Outstanding high school poets whose work exhibits exceptional creativity, dedication to craft and promise are selected annually for a year of service as literary ambassadors for poetry, encouraging a wide range of youth to explore and develop new creative capabilities. This program is a partnership among the President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities, the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the Alliance for Young Artists and Writers.
