  • BFA 2015 William H. Izlar, Jr. Poetry Contest


    Two sets of prizes are given annually during National Poetry Month for the four best poems entered by Ben Franklin Academy students for the William H. Izlar, Jr. Poetry Contest. The Mary Ryan and Henry G. Kurt Foundation established the contest in memory of Ben Franklin Academy’s great friend and long time Board of Overseers Member, Bill Izlar, who was also a lifelong lover of poetry.

    The 2015 winners of the William H. Izlar, Jr. Poetry Contest are: Joey Smith and Justin Bridges, who won the top awards with monetary and book prizes; and Celine Macke and Katie Stewart, who received book awards.
