April is National Poetry Month and this is the official National Poetry Month poster from the Academy of American Poets designed by Samantha Aikman, a student who won this year's poster contest. National Poetry Month is celebrated the world over and aims to promote the importance of poetry in our lives. It is also a celebration of the many great poets who have contributed to the realms of poetry. The first presidential proclamation of National Poetry Month was done in April 1996 by President Clinton.
