To support sustainability and celebrate Schools Tree Day on 29 July, we’re inviting all students and teachers to enter the POEM FOREST Prize. For every nature poem received, we’ll plant a native tree at the Australian Botanic Garden.
- What: Write a poem, plant a tree.
- Who: The POEM FOREST Prize is open to young people 18 and under and accredited teachers.
- How: Download our free Learning Resource to guide young people in creating their own nature poem. Submit poems into the POEM FOREST Prize to have them published, see a tree planted and go in the running for exciting prizes including $500 cash for each category.
- Where: Full details and entry form on the POEM FOREST webpage.
- When: Entries close 23 September.
- Why: We plant a native tree at The Australian Botanic Garden for every poem received. The easiest way to plant a tree and help heal country is to write a poem! All poets will be in the running for $5,000 worth of prizes including a $500 cash prize, book packs, plants and more.
Thanks for helping us grow the POEM FOREST and heal habitats for future generations. We can’t wait to read your students’ poems.
Yours in poems and trees,
The POEM FOREST Team
