Kansas Supreme Court Chief Justice Lawton Nuss will judge the upcoming state Cowboy Poetry Contest.
The annual contest is scheduled for Friday in Alma.
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.
Nuss, who has a love for old west history, is a Salina native who spent his summers working on a family ranch.
Nuss has judged the contest every year since the contest began in 2011.
