Spring is for New Beginnings Poetry Contest

April is National Poetry Month, and Nevada Action for School Options is excited to celebrate with our third annual poetry contest and Facebook Poetry Reading Event with the finalists (videos will be pre-recorded by the finalists)! Watch our pretty unforgettable inaugural reading featuring some amazing young poets here.

We want you to send us your poem for our National Poetry Month contest with the theme “Spring is for New Beginnings.”  The winner from each age group will receive a certificate and a prize! 

This contest is open to all Nevada children grades K-12, wherever they currently receive their schooling. The contest will be broken down to grade level groups, as always.

One winner will be selected from each group. Check out past winners here!

There is no required format for your poem, however we do ask that your poem be inspired by the theme “Spring is for New Beginnings” in any way you like.

All poems must be emailed to ashley@nevadaaction.org by the end of day April 30, 2022. Please include your name, age, grade, and city you live in when you submit your poem. Multiple entries are accepted, but a child may only win one prize.

Finalists will be selected by our panel of VIP poets. All finalists will be notified by email. The finalists will be asked to send a video recording of themselves (with parent permission) reading their poem for our Poetry Reading Facebook event. The VIP panel will select one winner for each age group from the finalists.

Please contact Ashley at ashley@nevadaaction.org with any questions! We cant wait to read your poems!
