Teens compete to become Hampton Roads Youth Poet Laureate

More than 20 youth poets from southeastern Virginia, along with their families and supporters, packed the penthouse at the Assembly NFK on Granby Street in Norfolk earlier this month to hear those competing to become the Hampton Roads Youth Poet Laureate.

This weekend, the top candidates will reconvene for the announcement of the Youth Poet Laureate 2022 and three poet ambassadors in a culminating event called ImmortALL. The announcement ceremony will take place from 5 to 8 p.m. Sunday at Zeiders American Dream Theater, 4509 Commerce St., Virginia Beach.

The event is hosted by Teens With a Purpose, a Hampton Roads nonprofit providing peer leadership training and development to empower young people to use their voice, creativity, reflection and action to transform lives and impact communities.
