POEM’S MUST BE PATRIOTIC IN NATURE!!
(Not a time for political bashing).
We are appreciative to Smith & Edwards for sponsoring this event.
In a time when it might be easy to look negatively at our country, Bert Smith (CEO Smith & Edwards -now deceased) wanted this to be an opportunity to look for the “good in our country and put those virtues in prose”. This is a time to remember that this nation was founded on ‘E Pluribus Unum’ – in the many – emerge one. Let’s focus on the unity in diversity and celebrate this great nation through true patriotism and poetry! Have Fun!
(Original Poetry receives extra points)!!
Top 4 poets in each division will receive gift certificates
to Smith & Edwards for $100, $75, $50, $25
