The American Chemical Society (ACS) is sponsoring an illustrated poem contest for students in grades Kindergarten-12. Winners will be selected from K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12 grades. The first place in each grade category will receive $200 while second place will receive $100. The deadline for this contest is April 9, 2010.
I thought this would be a great opportunity for children to appreciate Earth Day and the poem contest is a great way for students to show their creativity. Students can be creative and their poems can be in any style as long as it is no more than 40 words! It’s a fun way to celebrate Earth Day and it will be even more fun to win the prizes! You can encourage your students to enter the contest.
