Poetry For The HART

As part of its Public Art Initiative, the Town’s Public Art Advisory Committee invites teen poets (ages 14 - 18) residing or attending school in Huntington to submit annually their work for inclusion in the Poetry for the HART Teen Poetry Project.

Selected poetry is displayed inside buses on ad panels on the Town’s HART bus system for a minimum of one year. The winning entries are also published in The Long Islander newspaper.  The Town recognizes the winning poets at an evening award ceremony and poetry reading held at the Walt Whitman Birthplace in late April (National Poetry Month) each year (click here for information on the most current award ceremony & reading).
