THANK YOU to all the students who participated in the 2021 Fresh Voices Poetry Competition, and to the teachers and parents who support them!
We are immensely grateful to this year’s Fresh Voices Judges: Frederick-Douglass Knowles II, Luisa Caycedo-Kimura, and Sophie Spaner.
On May 12, Fresh Voices finalists read their poetry for this prestigious panel of judges. At the conclusion of the readings, the following winners were announced:
Eve Brouillard Rockville High School
Nora Holmes William H. Hall High School
Jamara Jean Westover High School
Valli Pendyala South Windsor High School
Cindy Truong ACES Educational Center for the Arts
What’s next for the winners? On Wednesday, June 23, they will participate in a Young Poets Celebration. Better yet, these impressive young poets will open for author and award-winning national poet Chen Chen!
