Honouring National Poetry Month, celebrated each year by the League of Canadian Poets, a national non-profit organization established in 1966 to support and promote poetry.

There are two categories in the library contest:

• Group 1 for ages 12 to 15

• Group 2 for ages 16 to 18

Any format of original poetry will be accepted, but cannot be longer than one single-spaced typed page.

“We’re encouraging Richmond teens to put their creative thinking caps on this month and submit their own original poem for a chance to win a gift card,” says Stephanie Vokey, co-ordinator, marketing and public relations for Richmond Public Library.

There will be two prizes for each category: first place will be awarded a $25 gift card to Richmond Centre and second place a $10 gift card.

Email your entry toteenblog@yourlibrary.ca

Judging will be on the creativity, clarity, originality and literary merit or message of the poem.
