The contents of these contest rules were developed under a grant, #PRU295B050003, from the Department of Education.
However, those contents do not represent the policy of the Department of Education, and you should not assume endorsement by the Federal Government.
The pride our students share is unbelievable when it comes to their writing. We do several different poetry exercises and projects throughout the year and I have found that the experience of working with your contest helps create extra student enthusiasm for their work and our various topics.
The contest is conducted in three phases: the local chapter, state-level society, and national phases. Each year, the SAR receives an average of thirty state-level winners from around the country to compete in the national-level contest.
The contest must be entered through an SAR chapter near the student’s residence.
