High School Poet Laureates

     Guilford County Schools media specialists and the Friends of the Greensboro Public Library sponsor the High School Poet Laureate Project. Each high school in Guilford County is eligible to select three semi-finalists whose works will be judged and one finalist awarded the title of Poet Laureate.  The winning poems are published in a chapbook. The United Arts Council provides the funding for this project.
