Bernstein Family Foundation is proud to support the Alliance for Young Writers and Artists, which is endowed with the partnership of The President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities (PCAH). The Alliance, PCAH, and Institute of Museum and Library Services have come together to create the National Student Poets Program, a distinction of the highest honor awarded annually to five lucky poets. These young visionaries instill a deep sense of inspiration and faith in the future of the craft. Hailing from across the U.S., they have been bestowed upon the responsibility to act as ambassadors of poetry in their respective regions. To get to know our most recent Student Poets, I asked them a few questions. To check out their award winning work, click on each of their profiles.
