WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – Kansas Supreme Court Chief Justice Lawton Nuss will judge the upcoming state Cowboy Poetry Contest.
The Wichita Eagle reports the annual contest is scheduled for Friday in Alma. Nuss has judged the contest every year since the contest began in 2011.
The panel of celebrity judges also includes Kyle Bauer of KFRM Radio, Frank Buchman of WIBW-FM and Marie Martin of the Flint Hills Discovery Center Foundation.
Those who compete at Alma will have survived regional qualifying rounds in Wichita, Dodge City and Strong City. The top cowboy poets will be recognized at Saturday’s Symphony in the Flint Hills concert, which is an event sponsor.
