I am a member of Soroptimist International of Rittenhouse Square, a Philly area Soroptimist club that benefits women and girls in our local community and around the world. We are holding The Brittany Noakes Poetry Contest with a prize for the winner valued at $500.
The funds we raise from the contest help our next Live Your Dream Award recipient, a single mother who has experienced hardships, go back to school. J.C. Todd is final judge, and MaryAnn L. Miller is creating the prize–25 broadsides of the winning poem.
It would mean the world to me if you entered! The link for sharing is: https://sirs.submittable.com/submit/56724 . Feel free to ask me any questions, I would be happy to answer them! There is also a FAQ at the link, which answers the crucial inquiry of: can people of all genders enter? And the answer is: yes!
For more information from Headquarters about the Live Your Dream Awards, visit this page, or, if you feel like tearing up, visit this page for a great video.
So far we have received 24 entries, so odds are good for you. Each entry brings $6.61 to the Awards program, meaning in just the first few days we’ve raised $158.64.
I hope that you enter!
