Friends Poetry Contest


The judges of the 36 poems that were entered were most impressed with the talent of this year’s young poets. Although we usually celebrate all of the poets and announce the winners of the contest at our Ice Cream Social in May, our decision to postpone the event to the fall now looks like a social distancing impossibility!  Below are the winners and a link to the winning poetry.  Well done!

Second:  Cruelty by Analise Braddock

Ages 13-16

First:  Sisters by Chance by Clare Patterson
