OHIO POETRY DAY CONTESTS 2018

Right now, judges are being lined up for this year's contests. You will notice from past years that many are from out of state. This is done to make our contests more professional, and we are very particular about who we ask to judge. Most of these are past winners in other contests at the state and national levels, and current or past officers of their own states and/or the National Federation of State Poetry Societies.
