Each poem should be no more than three minutes in length when read aloud. One poem should be humorous and may tell a story or reminisce of something humorous that a cowboy might have experienced or witnessed of past Christmases. The second poem should be sentimental in nature and reflect on the season through observations and/or fond memories of Christmases past.
The poems selected will each be awarded a cash prize of $500."

The World’s Toughest Rodeo, photographed by Mandy Dwyer and reviewed in conversation by Kara Nesvig and Marcus Michalik.
Kara Nesvig: So, Marcus, we went to the World’s Toughest Rodeo at the Xcel Center on Saturday night. What did you wear? I think we better address our ensembles straight off the bat; inquiring minds want to know.
Marcus Michalik: I tried to get into as a much of a character from Country Strong as I possibly could, so I put on my best three colors of denim and accented it with a little blue bandanna. I think the people would much rather know what you wore, however.
