The North Carolina Poetry Society holds poetry-related contests and gives away several awards each year, for both Adults and Students (which includes 3rd Graders all the way to University Undergraduates).
We have single-poem contests each year; for more information about our assorted Adult Contests, please click here to go to the Adult Contests page.
