Earth Day Poetry Contest last call


It’s the last call for our Earth Day Poetry Contest! The contest ends Wednesday, so be sure to upload your poem by then.

Here’s a reminder of the rules:

We’re asking kids ages 6 to 14 to write an original poem — that means it can’t be copied from the Internet, a book or anywhere else. Poems, which can take any form, must be related to the environment. They should not be more than 100 words. Only one poem will be accepted per person.

Judges will select as many as 10 poems based on creativity and form for publication on Earth Day (April 22) in the printed KidsPost and at kids post.com. The writers of the published poems will be notified in advance and will receive a prize package.

We need to receive your poem by Wednesday through our online form, which has the complete rules. ●Have an adult (a parent, guardian or teacher) fill out the form below and upload your poem. (If you cannot see the form, it is also at wapo.st/kids postearthdaypoetry). We can’t wait to read what you have written!
