It’s late notice, but this just arrived in my email box from a fellow NYU alum:
I’m judging this year’s Hippocrates Young Poets Prize for Poetry and Medicine, an international award open to poets aged 14-18 for a poem on a medical theme. If you teach high school students or have teens of your own who write poetry, I hope you’ll encourage them to submit.
The deadline is March 1, 2018 and the prize is a whopping £500 (~$700)!

If you don’t qualify–or write poems, but you know someone who does, please spread the word. Let us know if you enter, and be sure to announce it know if you win!
