Master of Ceremonies will be Dennis Wolfe (for the sixth year). Contestants may either personally read their poems, designate a representative to read or the Master of Ceremonies Dennis Wolfe will read. John Greif III will be a judge - for the sixth year. (Mr. Greif is responsible for starting this event, being the founding member of the Bad Poet's Society which evolved into the poetry contest.)
