Bucks County Poets Laureate Details

Each Bucks County Poet Laureate receives a proclamation from the Bucks County Commissioners, a monetary award, and a reception at which the in-coming and out-going Poet Laureates read their original work.  Poet Laureate official duties include writing a poem to honor the recipient of the Bucks County Women’s History Month award and helping judge the Bucks County High School Student Poet of the Year.
