Our schools poetry competition results.
During the autumn of 2019 we ran a poetry competition for children in Years 3-6 (aged 7-11) in Dorset schools on the theme of climate breakdown, the environment and sustainability. We were delighted to learn that a number of the schools encouraged many of their classes to write something, and then they submitted the best. In all we had 165 entries and our grateful thanks go to all the teachers who spent time educating these young people about such important issues.
The competition was judged by Anne Peterson of SOUTH poetry magazine and was partly sponsored by Wessex Water. We were also most grateful to BCP Libraries for hosting the prize-giving event.
