Poetry has always been my weakest link as I call it, but this is worth a try to get a scholarship.

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!
