2019 Poetry Contest Winners

To celebrate National Poetry Month, a contest was held to encourage patrons of all ages to submit their creative writing.  Categories included: Children (age <12), Teen (age 12-19), and Adult (age 20+).  Entries were judged on originality, complexity, language and imagery, editing and proofreading, and careful arrangement of poetic techniques.  Please enjoy below the winning poems of this year's contest!
