The America Library of Poetry is hosting a national competition. There are 4 divisions (based on your grade level in school) with a $500.00 grand prize and many other prizes (random drawings for all who submit a poem-laptops, netbooks, tablets...!).

- May not be any longer than 20 lines

- It can be in any style (except concrete/shape poems or blackout poems)

- It can be on any subject, but must not be vulgar, offensive, use profanity
