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."
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. Medalists receive a prize purse of $5,000.
