Garden club announces Poetry Contest theme for 2021


To all the parents out there looking to keep their children engaged while schools are closed, here is the perfect activity. North Haven Garden Club Youth Program is participating in The National Garden Clubs Annual Poetry Contest for 2020-2021, which is open to students in North Haven from Kindergarten to Ninth Grade. The contest theme this year is "ADVENTURES IN THE GARDEN" . We hope this program will "excite and encourage our Youth to express and explore their creative thoughts through different types of poetry. National Garden Club's Poetry Contest enables our youth to embrace their creativity through the art of writing. Be imaginative and join the winners to see your poetry in a printed booklet!" We had 2 students published last year in the National Garden Club Poetry Book!

FIVE grand prizes and a certificate will be awarded to the winners from the North Haven Garden Club along with a certificate from The Federated Garden Clubs of CT. This is the breakdown- Kindergarten & 1st, 2nd & 3rd, 4th & 5th, 6th & 7th and 8th & 9th. So come and get your "ADVENTURE" on and try your hand at poetry, you'll never know if you have a hidden talent if you don't try! We had 2 WINNERS in the 2019 contest who were published and received a book and prize from Federated Garden Clubs of CT.
