Carl Sandburg Student Poetry Contest
The contest, which encourages young students to write, has grown to over 200 submissions. In January of each year educators are invited to submit original poems written by their students. Students in grades 3-12 are guided only by an annual theme. Submissions can be written in any style. Poems are judged within grade categories, 3-5th, 6-8th and 9-12th. Winning poets are then invited to share their work at a celebration in their honor.
Check back in December 2013 for the 2014 contest announcement.

Not only is picking up after your pet lawful and courteous, but it can also help keep the soil free of parasites such as roundworms and hookworms and it can help keep humans safe from infections. Dispose of pet waste by flushing it down the toilet or by tightly bagging it for garbage collection.
