Nature Poetry: May 2020 Contest Entries & Winners
Posted by Erika Jensen, Development Coordinator
This last May, we challenged Carpenter Nature Center online audiences to send us their nature themed writings for a spring poetry contest. Any style of poetry was welcome, as long as it did not exceed 300 words.
We had some really fantastic entries, with a diverse array of poetry styles and topics. Some of the compositions were very reflective of the times we are currently living in, while others showcased children’s perspective on the natural world.
The winners were chosen by CNC staff in an anonymous vote. All of the entries were a delight to read, and it was very difficult for us to pick just a couple of winners. We hope you all remain inspired to express your love of the outdoors through creative mediums!
