Works by three Corinth Elementary students were selected for a regional celebration of youth poetry in April.
Mrs. Fuller’s writing classes learned about poetry structure and forms in February, and wrote poems using photos of a cardinal in flight, a butterfly sipping from a flower, and a dark night with a full moon as inspiration.
Each student wrote three poems, and chose two to enter in the 20th annual Great Adirondack Young People’s Poetry Contest.
Poems by Aiden Schurr, Madison Braim and Bailey Hall were among the 59 poems chosen as "poems of special merit" from the more than 400 submissions received by the Poetry Group of Saranac Lake. The contest included poems written by students in grades 1-12 from around the region.
The selected poems are published in a booklet, “Words from the Woods,” and the young poets were invited to read their work at the award ceremony in April at the Hotel North Woods in Lake Placid.
More information about the poetry contest can be found on the Lake Placid Institute’s website.
