Public Information Office promotes Poetry Out Loud and earns WPA award

Milward Simpson, director of the Wyoming Department of State Parks and Cultural Resources, sends this news:

Please join me in congratulating Gary Schoene and our Public Information Office staff on the recognition they received during the recent Wyoming Press Association convention at the Plains Hotel here in Cheyenne.

The SPCR PIO was presented with a second place news writing award in the “three releases on a single topic” category for a series of press releases on last year’s Poetry Out Loud competition.

In presenting the awards, the judges commented that the Poetry Out Loud competition was “an interesting story which was covered by many local newspapers. This is just what the news release is for in helping local newspapers get the word out about unique events.”

The Wyoming Arts Council sponsors the state’s Poetry Out Loud competition. [sentence deleted by editor.] Wyomingarts thanks Gary Schoene and his staff for helping us publicize this poetry recitation project for high school students.
