Continue reading below

Northern Essex Community College is seeking submissions for its sixth annual peace poetry contest. Students in kindergarten through grade 12 from public and private schools, as well as adults affiliated with the schools and Northern Essex students, are invited to participate in the contest by creating and submitting original poems about peace. The deadline for submissions is March 15. Some 80 poems and accompanying artwork will be selected for a small book of poetry that will be published in late spring. In addition, some entrants will be invited to take part in a poetry reading from 6 to 8 p.m. May 2 in the Hartleb Technology Center on Northern Essex’s Haverhill campus, 100 Elliott St. Last year’s contest attracted about 1,000 entries from 48 schools. The contest is coordinated by Northern Essex English professor Paul G. Saint-Amand,a Vietnam War-era veteran and Gloucester resident who has made it his personal mission to promote peace. Northern Essex students are collaborating on the contest and have designed posters and award certificates, will participate in judging entries, and will host the public reading. Entries may be submitted to peacepoetry@necc.mass.edu or NECC Peace Poetry Contest, 100 Elliott St., Spurk 317H, Haverhill, MA 01830.
