Poetry Challenge

Poetry Challenge

New for 2019-2020, NEHS will be inviting both student members and Advisors of active NEHS chapters to submit poetry for the “Poetry Challenge.” Each month, starting in October, poets may submit original poetry based on themes that have been established by the Advisory Council. The best submissions will be published throughout the NEHS social media network; at the end of the school year, the Advisory Council will select the best of the poems published. The top two Advisor and student poets will receive a $150 award. Additional funds will be allocated to second- and third-place poets based on the availability of funds.

Visit the Poetry Challenge page on the NEHS website for information on submission guidelines and for more information on the application process. Please note that all submissions are due by the 15th of each month.
