poetry month gifts

Posted by Daniela Elza on May 04 2017

Two of my students (Samantha Chen and Christina Chen) are winners in the 2017 Jessamy Stursberg Poetry Prize, a contest run by the League of Canadian Poets for Canadian youth.
When they came into the writing room and told me I realized I had two of the national winners in the writing room (at the same time in one space) and between them they won 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in the junior category.
Such a lovely gift for National Poetry Month.

You can read the first place winner in the junior category here.

You can read the second place winner here.

And the third place winning poem here.
Check out the other winners as well. Thank you to the judges and for their comments.

Needless to say I am thrilled.
