The Selection Process

From this pool of National Medalists, 35 semi-finalist nominees are selected to submit an application to the National Student Poets Program, which includes additional, original work and video-recordings of personal statements and recited poetry. Once the applications are completed, they are submitted to a distinguished jury for the final selection of five National Student Poets.
