The Chemists Celebrate Earth Day Illustrated Poetry Contest is sponsored by the American Chemical Society - check out this flyer. Contest is for students K-12 and they compose an original poem (40 words or less) and illustrate the poem. The theme for this year is “Chemistry Helps Feed The World”. The flyer provides some possible topics as well as the judging criteria for the entries.
The Western Carolinas Local Section gives out awards for first ($50 gift card) and second ($25 – gift card) place in each grade category (K-2, 3-5, 6-8 and 9-12) so up to $300 in prize money available.
As you can see from the winning poems in 2016, the top awards have both a strong poem AND are well illustrated. See them here - https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/education/outreach/cced/cced-illustrated-poem-contest/poem-contest-winners.html
Our Local Section (Western Carolinas) submissions were outstanding last year! (Local students won two of the eight national awards).
