Peaceful Poetry Youth Contest!

Young people are key to putting the pieces together for creative conflict resolution. The Peaceful Poetry Youth Contest encourages kids to write a poem or song about a peaceful theme (listening, respect, anti-bullying, etc). 5 selected poets receive gift cards, public recognition at the Peace Builder Awards Gala on November 17th, AND will be filmed by BTV! Check out the WDRC YouTube Channel for videos, or download our Peaceful Poetry Youth Contest booklet to read past poems.
