Robert Frost Medal

Not to be confused with the Robert Frost Award.

The Robert Frost Medal is an award of the Poetry Society of America for "distinguished lifetime service to American poetry." Medalists receive a prize purse of $2,500.

The medal was first presented in 1930 to George Edward Woodberry

For the following 53 years, the Frost Medal was awarded only eleven times, to poets at the end of their careers. In 1984, it became an annual award to a living poet. Since 1995, the recipient of the Frost Medal has delivered the Frost Medal Lecture, a retrospective reading and talk that is the highlight of the Annual Awards Ceremony.

Robert Frost was the fourth recipient of the Frost Medal, in 1941, after he had retired from Amherst College.
