The Ronald Reagan poetry contest
llinois school students are encouraged to write poems to commemorate the late President Ronald Reagan’s 100th birthday. The Reagan Centennial Commission is sponsoring a poetry contest for elementary, middle and high school pupils. Entries must be submitted by Jan. 15, 2011. Illinois Poet Laureate Kevin Stein will judge entries in the three age divisions.
Our guess is that this contest will produce even better poems than the LeBron contest, because a) kids are writing the poems, and b) they’ll be about the Gipper!
