It’s time again for the Whatcom Dispute Resolution Center Youth Peace Poetry Contest. Young writers ages 4 to 18 are invited to submit their poems on the subject of peace (with themes such as listening, respect, anti-bullying, friendship, etc.). Five winning poets will receive public recognition and have the opportunity to read their poems aloud at the WDRC’s annual Peace Builders Awards Gala.

To read last year’s winning poems and to download a submission form, visit the WDRC Youth Peace Poetry Contest page.
