Danville Public Library
— In memoriam of past library director Melba Geoffroy and in conjunction with National Poetry Month in April, the library is sponsoring a poetry contest for all ages. Poems must be original works and must be submitted by April 30. There will be three divisions for entry: 18 to adult, 13 to 17, and 12 and younger. Each division will have a panel of three judges from the community. Contestants may enter up to two poems; each must be typed or computer generated on 8 1⁄2x11-inch white paper in Arial or Times New Roman font. No graphics or color ink is allowed. Each poem must be titled and no longer than 40 lines. Poems will be assigned a number, as this will be a blind judging. Entry forms to accompany poems are available at the circulation desk or online at dplindiana.org. A first prize of $35 will be awarded in each division. There will also be a second prize of $25 and a third prize of $15 in each division, and everyone who participates will receive a certificate. Winning poems will be published in the DPL newsletter. For more information, stop by or call the library.
