VOYA's Teen Poetry Contest

A poetry contest for teens age 12-18, but the catch is that entries MUST be sponsored by a teacher or librarian. Teens, you can't just enter yourself. However, if you come up to one of us, I'm sure we'd be happy to send in the poem for you.

Submission Guidelines:
  • Contest submissions may be poems of up to thirty lines on any topic.

  • They must be typed in a Word document.

  • Include the following information on the same page of each poem entered: poet’s name, age, town, and state; sponsor’s name, title, organization/school/library, address, phone, and e-mail.

  • Name the document file with the poet’s last name. Ex: Smith.doc

  • Attach the document to an e-mail with “VOYA Teen Poetry Contest” and the poet’s last name in the subject line.

  • Only one poem per teen, please.

  • Contest Deadline: December 31, 2011.

Each winner will receive a $20 cash prize and a copy of the April 2012 issue of VOYA in which their poem will be printed.

From VOYA, where you'll find more info.
