April is National Poetry Month. If you're looking for a fun, local tie-in consider having your students enter the Youth Poetry Contest here at the UAPL. The contest is sponsored by our Teen Advisory Board. To participate, kids in grades K-12 write their own poem and submit a copy to any of the Upper Arlington Youth Departments from March 29 through April 1, 2016.
Poems are open to creativity but limited to 500 words. One poem from each grade group (K-4; 5-8; 9-12) will be chosen anonymously by the Teen Advisory Board. Each winner will receive a blue ribbon and will be featured on our blog.
Please have students include their name, grade, phone number and email address on their entries.
