We are celebrating National Poetry Month with a poetry contest of our own! Write an original poem (less than 100 words) about Harry Dumpty and submit it on or before April 30th. There will be three categories: adult, teen and children.
A winner will be chosen from each category on May 1st. Each winner will receive a personalized t-shirt with their poem on the back, a chocolate egg from The Confectionary and they will be able to read their award-winning poem during our groundbreaking event.
Please submit poems to Edith Craig via email at email@example.com, at the library or by fax 815-756-7837. Please include your name, age (so we can discern your category), email and/or phone number.
Add an Easter egg to your bunny basket.
