The results of the 2012 Poetry Contest are in! Students were asked to submit poems following the rhyme scheme, length and meter of sample poems by three American poets: Ogden Nash, Emily Dickinson and Robert Frost. Poems were to explore the theme of yearly seasons, though plenty of latitude was permitted in order to encourage creativity. The judges were extremely pleased by the many fine entries in all three age categories.
