2022 Student Poetry Contest

The year 2022 brings a sense of renewal, especially after one of the world’s worst pandemics. Renewal is defined as replenishing or to fill with inspiration. Renewal makes us think of rebirth, growth, or re-growth. Renewal allows us to imagine and dream. Renewal gives us hope. Click below to learn more about this year’s poetry contest focused on Renewal!
