“When I Get My World Back” Youth Poetry Contest Finalists Reading Event Video

This 10-minute video features 11 of the talented young poets, all finalists in the “When I Get My World Back” poetry competition we held this spring during National Poetry Month.

During National Poetry Month, and in the early weeks of the pandemic shutdowns, we asked our young poets to reflect on any of three elements in the poetry they submitted to the contest, inspired by the theme “When I Get My World Back”:

A place you would like to visit

A thing you would like to do

A person you would like to emulate

Participants were in grades K-12, and include students attending traditional district, public charter, private and homeschools around Nevada.  We are confident you will enjoy what our inspiring young poets shared with us in their poetry submissions.
