Utah State Poetry Society sponsors WCSD student poetry contest
Students in the Washington County School District are invited to participate in the 4th annual Youth Poetry Contest sponsored by the Dixie Poets, a local chapter of the Utah State Poetry Society. The theme this year is "Peace", so those interested students can write a maximum of 24 lines in a rhyming or free verse poem on this topic, and possibly win a prize.
Entrees are due Oct. 12, 2013 from first through 12th grades, including all home-schooled, private or public schools, and winners will read their poems for the Southern Utah Book FESTIVAL's Author Expo on Oct. 17, 2013 at 10 a.m. at the Lexington Hotel.
There are no entree fees, poems will be judged by local members of the Dixie Poets. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 628-8522.
