Poetry Contest Details
Booked on 25th and Ogden Pride hosted the 3rd Annual Ogden Pride Poetry Contest. The contest had two rounds — on July 14th and July 21st.
- Poem had to be inspired by the theme of the 2018 Ogden Pride Festival: Stand Out, Speak UP
- Amateur poets were invited to recite an original poem of their own construction
- The Poets had to limit their time to 5 minutes
- No Music, props, or costumes were allowed
- Finalists read or recited three original poems. At least one of them had to be inspired by the festival’s theme (repeating the first week’s poem was fine.)
|Finalists each received an Ogden Pride t-shirt and gift cards from Booked on 25th.|
The winner is invited to recite a poem from the stage at the Ogden Pride Festival on August 4. They are also invited to have a collection of their poetry published. Other prizes, including gift cards and items from other businesses, were given as well.
