I was selected as a topical winner! I never would have thought one of my poems would be published!

Isabela M  on 5/1/2020 12:23:39 PM

I just submitted my poem. So excited that someone else will be reading my work. Even if I don't win the scholarship, I hope I inspired my readers by my craftsmanship somehow.

Cant wait to win!!!

Margo M.  on 1/5/2018 10:18:40 PM

I entered this contest a couple of months ago (maybe 2) and my poem was within the top 2% of all poems across the nation that were submitted. My poem won in the "My World" division, and will be published in one of their books. I highly recommend entering this, because it was a lot of fun to be able to write my own poem!

It's always worth a shot!
