The 2014 Ruth Berrien Fox Poetry Contest is now open for submissions. This contest is open to all Massachusetts high school students, and is free to enter. Students may submit ONE poem (any length, style or topic) to the competition, and the top entries receive cash prizes.

Last year, BHS senior Dora Kadish became the first-ever winner from Burlington in the 13-year history of this contest. This year, who’s going to be the second? (or the third? – the contest awarded 11 prizes last year!)


To submit, please follow these instructions, which can be found on the New England Poetry Club website and their promotional poster:

Submit in duplicate, with the following on one entry: (feel free to cut & paste this into your own document)

[Your Name]
[Your Grade]

c/o [Your English Teacher]
123 Cambridge Street, Burlington MA  01803

Send to: Children’s Contests, Longfellow National Historic Site, 105 Brattle St., Cambridge MA 02138

Please note that the website for the contest has some outdated information on it, including the deadline.

And a reminder:

The ODE TO BURLINGTON poetry contest closes on March 1. See our previous post on the contest for more details.
