April is National Poetry Month! Here in the Southwest, the Corrido is an integral part of our poetic history. We celebrate it every year with our Corrido Contest for High School Students, a program that culminates with a musical performance of the winning Corridos. For National Poetry Month, we’ve designed a broadside with one of our favorites featuring the 2nd place winner of this year’s contest. Download it, print it, and display it in honor of this critically important artform.
