DEADLINE EXTENDED FOR SUBMISSIONS TO NJ YOUTH POET LAUREATE CONTEST!

NJ Youth Poet Laureate Contest

We've decided to extend the deadline on our NJ Youth Poet Laureate poetry contest, so high school poets now have until December 1, 2016 (a few extra weeks) to enter!

There are three winners, one from each region of the state—North, Central, and South—and awesome prizes like the chance to perform your work at various poetry events throughout the state, a Governor's Award, and having your poems published in an anthology.

All you have to do is submit up to five poems to the contest—it's completely free!

But despite the extension, the deadline is coming up soon, so enter now! Entries will only be accepted up until December 1st, 2016 at 11:59 PM, so tell the high school poets in your life to submit now!

Head over to https://www.wtnj.org/nj-youth-poet-laureate/ for all of the details and to submit online!
