DNR Poetry Contest For Elementary Students

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is now accepting entries from third through fifth graders for its Air, Air, Everywhere poetry contest.

Now in its 13th year, the annual DNR-sponsored contest is designed to raise awareness for the importance of air quality during Clean Air Month in May.

The DNR encourages teachers and parents to submit original poems and riddles created by their students. The three winning poets will have their work featured on the DNR website and social media channels.

The contest is open to all third, fourth and fifth grade students in Wisconsin. Any form of original poetry or riddle is acceptable. Entries must be 200 words or less and describe air and/or the importance of clean air. Each entry must include the author’s name, the name of the parent/teacher and the parent/teacher’s email and phone number.

Entries can be submitted as a Microsoft Word Document, PDF or written in an email. Google Document links will not be accepted. Email entries to [email protected].

The deadline to submit entries is May 3.
