Live Poets Society of New Jersey Awards National High School Poetry Scholarships

The Live Poets Society of New Jersey sponsors a national scholarship poetry contest for U.S. high school students. The contest is open to all U.S. high school students, who may submit entries through the end of May during their senior year.

Submissions must be original, unpublished poems consisting of 20 lines of text or fewer. Entries must be written in English. Work may not be concurrently entered in any other contest. Students may not submit more than one poem during a 90 day time frame. There is no entry fee. Several scholarships are awarded each year, with values ranging from $100 - $1,000 each.

Applicants should include the following information along with their poem: name, address, high school, year of graduation, most recent English or writing instructor's name and email address, and the school's website URL. Please note that attachments will not be accepted.

Entries may also be submitted via mail, in a standard #10 business envelope, to:
