Poetry Competition—Caring for our Environment

A national poetry-writing competition on the theme of sustainability and caring for our environment is now open for entries. The task is to write a poem, no longer than one side of A4 in Times New Roman, and the competition is open to students in all year groups 7-13.

The deadline is end of term (16th July) and please submit to your English teacher by email. The best entries (5 per year group) will be entered for the national competition and winning entries will be published in an anthology. House points will be issued by your English teacher for all students who enter. The competition will be promoted in your English lessons but you can get started on ideas for your poems at home.

Poems should be linked to one of the following themes, which are based on UN Sustainable Development Goals: Equality for Everyone; Guarding the Natural World; Health & Happiness; Taking Climate Action; Building a Better World.
