Statewide Awards Announcements Coming Soon;
You Can Still Watch Regional Awards!

An online celebration of the 2020 statewide awards is in the works! We will announce the 2020 Poetry Contest and Powerful Pen, Promising Young Talent, and Humor awards. Guest author Margaret Peterson Haddix, poet George Bilgere, and Tonight Show writer Sage Boggs all will appear on video to honor Power of the Pen writers! Watch for further information.

Virtual awards ceremonies for the final four online regional tournaments are still viewable on Power of the Pen's YouTube Channel and Facebook.

Thank you to Kent State University for providing its Blackboard system to make the online tournaments possible. Thank you also to our generous awards sponsors: Baldwin Wallace University, The Turner Foundation of Springfield, Block Communications, and the Hudson PTO and The Hudson Kiwanis Foundation.
