The results are in! Judges have made their selections for this year’s contest. See the complete list of winners and honorable mention recipients here.
To all participants and teachers, the Theater and Poetry Project would like to thank you for your participation in the 2021 Paterson Student Poetry Contest. It was an honor to have received your submissions and the judges thoroughly enjoyed reading them. Below you’ll find a list of prize winners in the First, Second, and Honorable Mention category. Judging for the contest is quite competitive and with nearly 500 entries this year, judges had a difficult time narrowing down their choices.
The electronic version will be available here in early May. The printed anthology and certificates will be mailed to winners and Honorable Mentions by mid-June. We are also working with the city of Paterson to determine if a socially distant award ceremony can be held at the Great Falls in mid-June as well. More details on the event will follow in the coming weeks.
Thank you again for participating, it’s a great joy to be able to give Paterson kids a safe, creative outlet. We hope you’ll choose to enter again next year!
