Watch the 与之 Peace Poetry Contest and Reading Live on Instagram
2022年5月18日-下午6:42

哈佛希尔, MA (May 18, 2022) –  Northern Essex 社区 College is proud to sponsor the 14th Annual Peace Poetry Contest and Reading. 每年, 学生 from K-12 classrooms (both public and private) and those adults affiliated with these schools are invited to create and submit original poems on the subject of peace. Participants are also encouraged to submit original artwork.

“The artwork and poems submitted this year are beautiful testaments to the shared hope humanity has for peace and the incredible connection between all human beings,Elle Yarborough说, professor of English at Northern Essex and coordinator of the Peace Poetry Contest and Reading. Yarborough works with the local schools to help 学生 in their creative process.  “I am meeting via Zoom with different classes to talk about their poems and to read a children’s book about writing poetry.  This compilation of poetry is just beautiful and includes entries from the Merrimack Valley to as far away as Ghana!”

A committee of Northern Essex faculty and 工作人员 select winners in each age group. This year, about 350 pieces will be shared during a special reading on the 与之 和平诗歌Instagram account, on Friday, May 20 at 6pm. About 225 of the submissions will also be published in a bound book, which will then be distributed to the the poems’ authors.

和平诗歌比赛 & Reading is a program offered under the Service 学习ing umbrella at 与之. This contest is sponsored by the Office of the Vice President for Student and Academic Affairs, 人文学部, 英语系, and Service 学习ing Committee. 学习 more by visiting the Peace Poetry 网页.
