Poetry Contest

 Embrace, Encourage, Empower! Poetry Contest

Booked on 25th and Ogden Pride hosted the 4th Annual Ogden Pride Poetry Contest. 

Our 4th Annual Ogden Pride Poetry contest had many amazing talented artists compose some powerful words as inspired by our festival theme Embrace, Encourage, Empower. Image may contain: 1 person, smiling, standing and outdoor

Our many thanks go out to our participants, our audience in attendance and our judges for their time and feedback. We would also like to thank Booked on 25th for being our dedicated partner for this wonderful event. We are excited to announce our 2019 Ogden Pride Festival Poetry contest winner, Rees Sweetan.
