While reading the Mercury News this morning, I discovered that there is a poetry contest for ALL teens living in the County currently underway in honor of National Poetry Month. While the Campbell branch is doing the good work of getting the word out, teens from any of our 15 cities in the county can apply. There are categories for both middle and high school age levels.
The last day to submit entries is May 1st, so spread the word. If you have students at home, send the link to their English teachers. Only 20 entries have been received so far.
Full details can be found at the Santa Clara County Library link. Good luck, poets!
