2013 Newman Young Poets Awards


If you like word games, poetry, or both, try your hand at this year’s Newman Young Writers Award sponsored by the Institute for US-China Issues at the University of Oklahoma.

This year four $500 prizes will be awarded to Oklahoma K-16 students or classes (Elementary, Middle, High School, and college). The winning English language poems must follow the rules of Classical Chinese Poetry. The competition only runs for one month so do not delay (January 25 – February 25, 2013). Winners will be invited to the University of Oklahoma to receive their $500 award at the Newman Prize for Chinese Literature awards banquet on March 7, 2013.
