In Celebration of April’s Poetry Month 2020, poets in Grades K-8, living in Linn and Benton County, are invited to participate in the 15th annual The Arts Center Youth Poetry Celebration. A reception and Open Mic Poetry Reading celebrates the poets and artists on Thursday, April 30, 5 pm. Each poet who comes to the Open Mic will receive a small cash award. This exhibition is generously supported by The Arts Center’s Literary Arts Fund.
All poems submitted will be exhibited in the Corinne Woodman Gallery at The Arts Center. Poems are divided into three (3) categories:
- Kindergarten-Grade 2
- Grade 3-Grade 5
- Grade 6-Grade 8
- Poems can be handwritten or typed.
- Paper size may not exceed 8.5 x 11 inches.
- Poems illustrated with original art (NOT clip art) are encouraged but not required. The art and the poem must be on the same piece of paper. If the art is on a separate piece we may only hang the poem depending on space availability.
- Do not frame poems and artwork.
- Deadline for submitting poems and artwork is Sunday, March 8, 2020.
- (There is a mail slot in the front door for last minute submissions.)
Award certificates for each category are selected by The Arts Center’s judges. While we encourage inclusion of art with poetry submissions, it is not required, and has no influence on poetry awards. An award certificate for artistic presentation will be assigned in each category.
All poems must have the following information legibly written and attached to the back:
- Name of poet: First and Last Name
- Title of Poem
- Address, City, State, Zip
- Phone # and Email
Awards will be announced at the Reception and Youth OPEN Mic, Thursday, April 30, 2020, 5 pm at The Arts Center, 700 SW Madison Avenue, Corvallis.
