Stand OUT, Speak UP! Poetry Contest

We’d like to congratulate Schkyra Morning as the winner of this year’s poetry contest! 

Schkyra will be reading her poem at 1:45 p.m. on the main stage at the Ogden Pride Festival!

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. 

Our Guidelines:

  • 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.
