Competition Open To Middle School Poets

Palm Springs Middle School is hosting a poetry competition open to all Palm Beach County middle school students. Original poems must be submitted by Monday, March 18.

The competition will culminate with a poetry reading and awards ceremony on Saturday, April 27.

Over 200 students had their poetry published after entering the 2012 competition. Twelve of the top poets received $100 each and a framed copy of their poem. Four judges are participating this year with the expectation of awarding 15 top prizes. Students will receive a copy of the published anthology containing the best poems.
