How The Children's School Incubates and Inspires Young Poets
Each year, Illinois Humanities, supported by the National Endowment for Humanities and the Illinois Arts Council, sponsors the statewide Gwendolyn Brooks Youth Poetry Awards. Only two students from each grade are selected from across the state for special recognition and two per grade receive honorable mentions.
This year, TCS students took home a total of nine awards!
