17-year-old Neil Katzman beat out nine other poets over the weekend in the 14th Annual New Mexico State Finals. His big win earned Bosque School a $500 stipend to purchase poetry books for the school library.

"I just feel really appreciative that I've gotten the opportunity to compete in it and just with all the amazing other kids who competed in the competition," said Katzman.

The national competition will take place in the nation's capital in early May.
