One of our primary goals is to enable students to release their own creativity. We aim to give them that opportunity through the Paterson Student Poetry Contest.
Paterson students grades 1 – 12 submit poems which are judged by a professional poet. The contest culminates in a published anthology of the winning poems, a live reading, and the awarding of prizes and certificates.
Students who would like to enter the contest must submit their poems to their teachers. Teachers must then send a file with each student submission to [email protected] Winners will be notified via mail with their awards and the ceremony to follow.
