The judge for the 2019 contest was Ladan Osman and the 2019 theme was "allies." The description for the theme asks the thought-provoking questions: "How do we know who is on our side? Is it possible for someone who is not like us to share our same hopes? Can links forged by empathy or mutual interest match those created by shared experience? What can we gain from alliances that we cannot achieve on our own?"
A list of previous winning poems are available on the site.
