Each year, the Mad Poets Society, the Delaware County Library System and other local organizations coordinate a contest for school-age residents of Delaware County in grades 1-12. Poems are judged by distinguished local poets and members of the Mad Poets Society. The winners are invited to share their poems and meet the judges at a special event at the Redwood Playhouse. This is an inspirational event, filled with profound voices of youth who are talented far beyond their years.
Original poems must be typed or written neatly on 8 1/2 by 11 paper, no odd size or construction paper, please.
