Description:
The Virginia Tech Department of English presents the 13th Annual Nikki Giovanni Celebration of Poetry and the Celebration of the Steger Poetry Prize Competition on Tuesday, April 17, 2018 inside The Cube at the Moss Arts Center at Virginia Tech.

The Steger Poetry Prize competition, one of the most prestigious undergraduate literary competitions in the country, is held every April during National Poetry Month.

Nikki Giovanni, the University Distinguished Professor of English, established the poetry competition for Virginia Tech undergraduates and named it for its first benefactor, Charles W. Steger, the university’s president at the time. She will host the event and help bring poetry alive.

This year a dozen students from five of the university’s colleges have been named finalists. They will be reading their winning entries interspersed with readings of poems chosen by Department of English faculty members and invited guests. Prizes for first, second, and third place will be awarded immediately following the readings.

The event will be followed by a reception.

All are welcome and admission is free.
