The Twelfth Annual Children's Poetry Contest First Prize and Honorable Mention Poems: A Friends of the Watertown Library Collection is now available on Biblioboard.
This Poetry Contest is open to Watertown and Oakville students in first through eighth grade. 272 poems were submitted for the contest. The theme for each grade this year was "The Arts". Selecting just a few poems to represent all of the student submissions isn't easy. All the poems are wonderful and imaginative.
Congratulations to all the writers this year for their commitment and their spirit.
All who work on this program continue to be very proud of all the students and are all already looking forward to next year!
