The 7th Grade Poetry Foundation sponsors poetry writing contests that are FREE to any school that wishes to participate. 7GP encourages poetry writing and gives students a chance to develop talents that they might not even know they have.
Every participating school selects its own winner and that winner will be published in an anthology of all winning poems that will be placed on the shelves of their local public library.
Winning poets will be united for a filmed poetry reading event and awards ceremony at a prominent venue (to be determined) in April, 2014, during National Poetry Month. At this event, all winners will read their poems for a film that will air on YouTube and at 7thGradePoetry.org. Awards will be presented to winning students by leaders of the community.
Join us in this FREE opportunity to get the students' voices out there and celebrate young poet laureates!
