January 26, 2021 - Staff

Each spring, the RCAH Center for Poetry administers the Capital Area Poetry Competition, with prizes donated by Barry Gross in memory of his dear classmate, colleague, and friend Richard Benvenuto. 

This year's competition and reading will be held virtually. The deadline for entry is Sunday, February 28.

The call for entries was emailed recently to high schools in Ingham, Eaton, and Clinton counties. The competition is open to all students who attend a high school one of these three counties. To view the most recent call for entries with guidelines, click here.

If you're a teacher in a tri-county high school and would like to be added to the distribution list, please email cpoetry@msu.edu with your name and the name of the high school where you teach.
