POEM’S MUST BE PATRIOTIC IN NATURE!!
(Not a time for political bashing).
We are appreciative to Mrs. Kathy Smith (wife of the late Bert Smith) for sponsoring this event. In a time when it might be easy to look negatively at our country, Bert Smith (CEO Smith & Edwards -now deceased) wanted this to be an opportunity to look for the “good in our country and put those virtues in prose”. This is a time to remember that this nation was founded on ‘E Pluribus Unum’ – in the many - emerge one. Let’s focus on the unity in diversity and celebrate this great nation through true patriotism and poetry! Have Fun!
(Original Poetry receives extra points)!!
Kids: PreK-6th Grades; 7th - 12th Grades
Adult Amateur & Pro (If you've ever been paid or published)
Top 3 poets in each division will receive $50 gift certificates
