2015 marked the 12th year of a unique and remarkable partnership of Greensboro Public Library and Guilford County Schools in recognizing and encouraging the writing and appreciation of poetry by High School students.  This year 18 schools participated in this county-wide poetry contest.  Each school holds a local contest, and then submits finalists for selection of a Poet Laureate.  The finalists submissions were judged and a Poet Laureate was selected for each school by Stuart Dischell, who teaches poetry writing as well as modern and contemporary poetry at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.  He is the author of four collections of poems. 


    This year, the High School Poet Laureate contest has been renamed in honor of one of the founding supporters, Marilyn Miller.
