The Loveland Area Chamber of Commerce has announced their 25th Annual Valentine Poetry Contest. The Valentine Committee requests simply that all poetry be related to love and Valentine’s Day. Winners, one in each category below, will be honored at the Loveland Area Chamber Valentine Breakfast, sponsored by the Oasis Conference Center, on February 14.
Poetry contest categories include:
- Pre-school & Kindergarten
- 1st and 2nd grades
- 3rd and 4th grades
- 5th and 6th grades
- 7th and 8th grades
- 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th grades
Poetry should be typed or printed, no longer than 16 lines. Poetry will be judged on written content only, not artwork accompanying the poem. Entries must include, on a separate sheet of paper attached to the poem, the first line of the poem followed underneath by the poet's first and last name, address, phone number, and if applicable, the poet’s school, grade and teacher's name.
The deadline for submissions is Friday, January 18.
