Spark! Youth Poetry Competition

The Spark! Youth Poetry Awards will take place virtually on November 19, at 4 p.m. Please join us to celebrate these young poets and listen to the winners who have submitted a recording of one of their poems.

Special Thanks to Maryanne Dorofachuk, Nevada Arts Council who coordinates the Spark competition each year for the Las Vegas Book Festival. Thank you to each of the judges poets, Vogue Robinson, Joan Robinson, Elizabeth Quinones-Zaldana, and Heather Lang-Cassera, Clark County Poet Laureate who will host the awards program.

This year due to COVID-19 restrictions for public gatherings and the shift to virtual programs, the competition was for written poetry submission only.

Please register and join us for the award announcements, and share this event as is possible.
