Reflections on Riverside

Student Entries Welcome for 2017 Reflections on Riverside Poetry and Imagery Contests

The Olmsted Society’s Reflections on Riverside program encourages area students to reflect upon Riverside’s landmark landscape and natural areas and to express their impressions creatively.

The Poetry Contest seeks poems of any style or length in keeping with our theme and is open to students in grades 1-8. $50 will be awarded to the 1st place Junior High winner (grades 6-8) and $25 will be awarded to the 1st place winner at each grade level 1-5.

The Imagery Contest, which is open to High School students, seeks entries reflecting upon any of Riverside’s landmark characteristics. $100 will be awarded to the 1st place winner and $25 to the 2nd place winner of each Division.

More details are available on the entry forms:

In addition to the foregoing prizes, the Riverside Public Library will be awarding honors for the most nature-themed poem(s) at a special ceremony to be held at the Brookfield Zoo this summer.
