National Poetry Month Young Poet's Contest

03/02/2015

The mission of our Poetry contest is to instill in children an appreciation for
poetry and writing and to draw attention to National Poetry Month which occurs
every April.

MSB poetry contest is open to all students currently in grades 1-8 with three divisions:  Grade 1-3, Grade 4-6, Grade 7-8.

The theme of this year’s poetry contest is color. Grades 1-8 entries should be
handwritten legibly and no more than one page long with a maximum of two
columns on the page. Both traditional and free verse poems are acceptable.

 

Poetry
will be judged on the following criteria:

Originality:
We encourage the young poets to think outside the box of the theme. For
instance, the theme “color” would be met if in the description of a scene in
the poem, only vague references were made regarding the theme – as in “The
Chartreuse Sunset.”  Creativity within
the theme is highly recommended.

Presentation:
 How the poem is presented on the
page to include neatness, following of guidelines, grammar, spelling and
mechanics.

Overall
Impact
: How well does the poet use words to create powerful images and/or
convey feelings?

 

1st, 2nd and 3rd
prizes will be awarded in all age groups.
