2012 Teen Poetry Contest WINNERS
This year we had 180 entries spread across the three divisions! Each of our 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners will be receiving a gift card to Anderson's Bookshop and an award certificate. Our judges certainly had their work cut out for them and so in addition to 1st, 2nd and 3rd Place winners, they also named a few Honorable Mentions that deserved some recognition and an award certificate!
And now... the winners!!! Poems can be viewed by clicking on the links below!
