Young Comanche poet wins first place at CTHC

Chisholm Trail Heritage Center in Duncan sponsored its second cowboy poetry contest this fall, for students in grades pre-kindergarten through 12th grade, with 63 entries. Jordan Smith, a third-grade student at Comanche Elementary, was the only student this year who also participated in 2018.

In 2018, she went from third place in second grade, to winning a first place in third grade this year, with her “Halloween on the Chisholm Trail” entry.

First through fifth place poets received winning checks. Through teachers, cowboy poet performers and social media, word of the contest spread beyond the borders of Duncan. The national contest drew entries from Oklahoma, Texas, Missouri and an entire class in Georgia submitted poems. Several parents mentioned they saw the contest on the CTHC website.
