Poetry Competition

Our exciting children’s poetry competition has been running since the start of lockdown and has been very well supported this year.  

The closing date of 31st July has now passed and our wonderful panel of professional judges have taken over.  Celia Rees, Susan Browne, Rad Gregory, Victoria Barton and Sam Beckett Jr are now reading all the entries carefully, selecting a shortlist and then picking out our winners.   The entries are of a very high standard so this is not an enviable task!   

At the moment, it is uncertain how prizes will be presented and whether we will still be able to have a display and performance for National Poetry Day,  but whatever happens we will ensure that our winners are celebrated far and wide.   Winning poems will be published in the press, and on our own social media pages and we will make sure your words of gratitude are shared across the North West Leicestershire community.  

Winners will be announced towards the end of September and full terms and conditions can be found here.
