Entries will be considered in three categories:

Students grades 6-8

Ceremony for winning entries: TBD

Entries must be received between January 1 and March 15, 2019.  Poetry submissions can be any length up to 100 lines, express any subject, and be rhymed or unrhymed. Entries will be blind-judged by a panel of jurists (submissions will be numbered on receipt so judges will not know contestant names or locations).All entrants will receive a participation certificate.

Poems accompanied by a submission form may be sent via email to: sahlib@ncls.org with “Poetry Contest” in the subject line.
