Despite the blowing snow, spring is (almost) in the air! Local youth aged 10-14 are invited to channel their energy and creativity and submit an original and unpublished poem – in English or French – to the BCA’s Spring Poetry Prize Competition. The theme of this poetry contest is “finding beauty in unexpected places.” Poems must be in rhyming verse and should reflect the theme; the word limit is 160. The deadline for submitting poems is April 27, 2022. If any participant would like to receive tips on how to write a poem, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
