The Lafayette Youth Poetry Prize Reading has become a wonderful tradition in Lafayette. We were disappointed that we were unable to hold the event this year. The Lafayette Cultural Arts Commission and ARTS!Lafayette are proud to present 2020 Lafayette Youth Poetry Prize Winners:
Congratulations to these talented young poets! We admire your ability to express yourselves through this very special literary art.
A note about Michael Adams:
Michael Adams was a founding board member of ARTS!Lafayette and longtime member and chair of Lafayette Cultural Arts Commission as well as a talented poet. He had a passion for poetry, the arts and community. He was an intelligent, thoughtful and guiding force for many. He had a huge heart and was a stellar volunteer. He lost his life to cancer in September 2013; this contest is held in his honor.
