Randolph College is now accepting submissions for its annual SciFest Poetry Jam competition.
All K-12 students in Lynchburg and surrounding counties can submit science- or math-based poems, with prizes— for $100, $50, and $25 gift cards—awarded to the three top poems in each grade group.
Students or teachers may make the submissions; if the winning poem is completed as a class assignment by more than nine students in the class, the teacher will receive the same prize as the student.
Submissions can be sent online at https://randolphscience.org/scifest-poetry-jam-submission-form, by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or in the mail, postmarked Feb. 24, 2023, to Randolph College, 2400 Rivermont Ave., Lynchburg, VA 24503.
Finalists will be invited to read their poems at the SciFest Poetry Reading and Awards Ceremony, set for Friday, March 24, 2023, and the top 52 poems will be published in a book available to all finalists.
