Deadline: Friday, Apr 14, 2017
Monroe county students are encouraged to submit poetry entries to the Robert Frost Poetry Contest for Children and Teens by Friday, April 14. Children aged 6-12 and teens aged 13-18 are encouraged to mail or drop their poems off at The Studios of Key West, 533 Eaton Street. Students may also submit written works by emailing poems to poetry@tskw.org. Students should include their name, parent or guardian’s name, phone number and age with submissions. Poetry can be any length, based on any subject, and be rhymed or unrhymed. Teachers may also submit the work of their students.
Robert Frost (1874-1963) won four Pulitzer Prizes for his poetry, and wintered many years at the garden cottage of the Heritage House. Through funds established by the Jeane and Jessie Porter Fund at the Community Foundation of the Florida Keys, the contest for children and teenagers was created in his honor, and nurtures and develops the interest of budding poets.
Top prize for each age group is a $75 cash award, second prize is a $50, and third prize is. Honorable mentions will also be given. Winners will be recognized with certificates at a reception and public reading in May.
