Tra i maggiori fans del progetto ci sono i giovani stessi che di anno in anno moltiplicano le partecipazioni segnalando il concorso e il forum ad altri giovani interessati, amici, istituzioni giovanili e i giurati, che impegnano tempo e passione nella selezione (anch’essi indicati di anno in anno nella pagina dedicata ai vincitori).

Un grazie doveroso ai soci di Poesia e Solidarietà che guardano quasi stupiti il crescere della manifestazione e attendono sorridenti l’invasione della città da parte di tante energie felici durante le giornate degli eventi.
