Student Poets Are Invited to Enter LVW's 33rd Annual Poetry Contest


LVW’s Student Poetry Contest is open to all students in grades 4-12 throughout

southwestern Pennsylvania. The contest is celebrating its 33rd anniversary. In each of

nine categories, first prize earns $25, second prize $20, and third prize $15. For the

best of the best in each grade group, the Naccarato Award (sponsored by longtime

LVW member Michele Jones), each of the three winners will receive $30. This means

there are 30 cash prizes—and no entry fees.

Please note that we now require submissions via email.

Feel free to forward the rules and entry form to any students, parents, or teachers

you know. We’ll also post the rules and entry form soon at Homeschoolers are welcome.

The deadline is March 11.
