2012 Teen Poetry Contest

Poetry Contest for Teens
Entries accepted from Nov 1 – Nov 30
Grades 9-12

Teens in grades 9-12 who love to express themselves through poetry are invited to submit poems for a contest sponsored by the Barrington Area Library.

Write a poem of 30 lines or less to be considered for the VOYA Teen Poetry Contest. (What's VOYA? See their Web site.) We’ll share all entries on our Facebook page. Then, we’ll choose the top three poems to send on to the national competition. A Barrington area teen was a winner just a few years ago - maybe this is your year!

Email your poem, name, age and town to lklinnert@balibrary.org by Friday, Nov 30.
