As some of you might know, the Wyoming Dept. of Health is the one of the major driving forces behind Chimera, they are the ones who awarded us the DOH Grant to help us do YAK and Chimera every Thursday! This morning I opened my email to find information on a poetry contest designed just for teens! Read the message below and visit the website for more information!
I work with the Wyoming Department of Health’s Youth Suicide Prevention program. We are launching the start of our fall poetry contest and want to get you and your students involved! We want to engage and include Wyoming youth all across the state by encouraging them to submit a poem that expresses how they “Let It Out.” This is a campaign that promotes healthy expression of frustrations and emotions through art. There is a grand prize for the winner and a chance for their work to get published on our website.
Attached is the flier for the contest, which outlines the deadlines and instructions in more detail. Please take a look to see what it’s all about. We would love your support in distributing it to your students and encouraging their participation. My contact information is listed below if you have any questions.
Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you!
