PLEASE READ THE RULES TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR CASH PRIZES

Do you care about the world around you? Why not help us make a statement??

This contest is being run by the University of Connecticut's Office of Environmental Policy. It is a fundraising and environmental awareness campaign we are launching. There is no entry fee to enter a poem in this contest on the WC site, BUT TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR THE CASH PRIZES YOU MUST FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS FOR ONLINE SUBMISSION AND PAY A SMALL ENTRY DONATION on the University of Connecticut web site.

There are 3 categories of submissions being accepted. Full details can be found on the web site linked below. The categories are Nature and the Environment, People in the Environment, and Environmental Awareness.

We are looking for poetry that celebrates or describes the natural world in the first category, "Nature and the Environment." For the second category, "People in the Environment," we are looking for poems that describe how people interact with the world around them, or are impacted by it.

The third category, "Environmental Awareness," deals with the scope of awareness about environmental problems, insights, solutions, thoughts, feelings, reactions, etc. There is a lot of leeway within this category.

The link with online submission details and more information about the categories can be found here:
