A Poet and I Know It

So my poem has been chosen as a semi-finalist for the International Open Poetry Contest. I just received something in the mail that looks like I've been chosen for a free trip to Disneyland, so I can't decide whether or not I should be getting excited about this. They are, however, publishing it in this year's emerging poets volume (which has a really horrible name: "Eternal Portraits"); and, of course, I have to buy the book if I want a copy. With my "special discount" it's only $50. Yikes. Is this like one of those "Who's Who Among American High School Students?" I'm new to the poetry world. Help.
