From the Times and Democrat:
If you hide poetry in your heart--or your school notebooks--then consider entering the international River of Words Environmental Poetry & Art Project. River of Words, a nonprofit arts and environmental education program, is seeking works from students in kindergarten through 12th grade to compete in the annual contest. Each April, eight U.S. winners, one international winner and a "ROW Teacher of the Year" are honored (during National Poetry Month) at a ceremony at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.
Girl Scouts can earn their "Water Drop" patch by entering the contest and fulfilling other requirements (www.epa.gov/adopt/patch/).
