Dawn Bolstad, an eighth-grade language-arts teacher, said young poets deserve a spotlight. “Kids who are in sports get accolades,” she said. “Kids who are poets kind of walk along the sidelines. Not too many people celebrate (poetry) in this area.” Soon, however, 10 eighth-grade poets from Craig Middle School will get their chance to shine. The Carol Jacobson Memorial Poetry Contest will take place at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Downtown Books, 543 Yampa Ave.
