South Carolina students: do you believe that poetry can change the world?
Tell us how by participating in this year's Young Minds Dreaming Poetry Contest! The Young Minds Dreaming Poetry Contest encourages young writers to capture the power of their words and experience the freedom of original literary expressions.
We invite you to participate by sharing poems about a person, place, or an experience that has changed your life. Each of us has within us the ability to empower and inspire ourselves and others. We all have ideas about our world. Your poetry may change the world in your own unique way.
First, Second, and Third Place winners will be selected for the following groups: Grades 3-5, Grades 6-8, and Grades 9-12. Winners and their families will be invited to the State Library to read their poems and awarded an Amazon gift card, up to $50!
If you are interested in submitting a poem, please review the contest requirements, register, and submit your poem here.
Submissions will be accepted until March 16. Winners will be notified by email and announced on our website on April 6. For more information on this contest, visit our website.
