Beaverton City Library Teen Poetry Contest: Acrostics

BEAVERTON, Ore. – April is National Poetry Month—celebrate by writing poetry! This year, Beaverton City Library and the New Friends of the Beaverton City Library challenge teens in grades 6-12 to write an acrostic poem, a quick poem in which the first letters of each line spell out a word or phrase.

Cash prizes will be awarded to three winners in middle school and high school. Contest guidelines and an entry form will be posted on the Teens page of the library website at beginning in late March.

Entries can be submitted in the Teen Room at the main library (12375 SW 5th St) or at the Murray Scholls branch (11200 SW Murray Scholls Place) and are due on Tuesday, April 23. Winning entries will be posted on the Teens page of the library website in early May.
