Old Cowtown Museum is hosting the 2014 Kansas Cowboy Contest at 2 p.m. Sunday at the Empire House.

People wanting to participate should submit their entries by going to www.cowboypoetrycontest.com

“We invite all those who enjoy the American West to participate,” said Ron Wilson, the poetry contest chair, in a news release.

The contest has two categories – serious and humorous poetry. Only original work will be considered.

The top three contestants in each division will advance to the state finals held this year in conjunction with the Symphony in the Flint Hills. The finals will be at St. John’s Lutheran Memorial Hall in Alma at 7 p.m. on June 13, the night before the symphony.

The winners will receive the Governor’s Buckle, two tickets to the Symphony in the Flint Hills and recognition during the concert.
