Haldimand County Public Library invites residents of all ages to get creative and participate in its 6 th annual poetry contest, to be held throughout the month of April. April 2018 marks the 20th anniversary of National Poetry Month being recognized in Canada, which celebrates poetry and the important role it plays in Canadian culture.

This year, the library’s poetry contest theme is Imagine The Future, and residents are encouraged to write and submit an original, unpublished poem of any style surrounding this theme. Entry forms, a full list of rules and submission details can be obtained on the library’s website or at any library branch.

Submissions will be accepted during the month of April and entered to win cash prizes in one of the following categories:

  •  Primary – Kindergarten to Gr. 3
  • Junior – Gr. 4 to Gr. 6
  • Intermediate – Gr. 7 to Gr. 10
  • Senior – Gr. 11 - 12
  • Adult – age 18+

Judging will take place at the end of April by a panel of retired English teachers and a professional published poet. First, second and third place prizes will be awarded in each category. First prize will receive $50, second prize will receive $35 and third prize will receive $20. Winners, their families and friends will be invited to attend the April Poetry Contest Awards Ceremony to enjoy poetry readings and light refreshments; a date and location for the ceremony will be announced towards the end of the contest.
