Youth Poetry Contest Awards Program

It's over, 53 entries from 18 different schools in Washington County School District and two home schools-grades 1 to 12th. Fifteen of the 20 winners came to read their poems and receive their prizes. Fun but lots of work! Thanks to our local merchants who donated the prizes: Redrock Bike, Barnes and Noble Bookstore, Chick Fil A, Apollo Burger, Paradise Bakery, 25 Main, Learning Express, Lasermania, Tuacahn Saturday Market, and Mountain America Credit Union-Sunset Branch. Organized by Lin Floyd of Dixie Poets with help from Shane Williams, Gary Christian and Shauna Williams of the Washington County School District.
