Frost poetry winner honored

The 2012 Robert Frost Youth Poet for the state of New Hampshire is Katie Naughton, a Hanover student. Her winning poem titled "Urgh!" was selected from the 600 poems submitted to the 2012 Robert Frost Youth Poet Program, on the theme of "Work and Play," sponsored by the Trustees of the Robert Frost Homestead and the University of New Hampshire Library.

The contest was open to all New Hampshire fourth-graders, who submitted poems on the theme of "Work and Play." Like Robert Frost at his family farm in Derry, they wrote about the many ways work and play defined family life and New Hampshire life.

Katie was honored June 23 at the Robert Frost Farm in Derry. All winning poems will be kept in a permanent archive at UNH, which houses a distinguished collection of Robert Frost's works.
