There is a poetry competition sponsored by the Montgomery County Poet Laureate program. It's free to enter. There are four age categories (grades 1-3, 4-6, 7-9, 10-12). The winners get cash prizes and are invited to read with the county poet laureate in April. Deadline is March 5. I've attached the flyer, which I invite you to distribute freely. Also, details are available at and Would love to see homeschoolers represented at the awards ceremony!
