2011 Poetry Contest
“REFLECTIONS ON RIVERSIDE”
2011 POETRY WINNERS
This year, a record 138 students put pen to paper and participated in the “Reflections on Riverside” Student Poetry Contest. The contest, open to local elementary and junior high school students, asks students to reflect upon Riverside’s natural areas and convey their impressions in poetic form.
Year-end ceremonies and announcements at six area schools were attended by Olmsted Society Board members who awarded all young poets gold foil certificates and warm congratulations. Cash prizes were awarded to each first place winner, and the first and second place winners were treated to framed certificates and sizable chocolate bars iced with the Society’s trademark oak tree. The 2011 winners are:
