2013 Poetry Contest Winners

The Dayton Metro Library took submissions in its annual Poetry Contest and below you can find the winning poems. This is the 16th year for the contest, open to residents of Montgomery and adjoining counties (Greene, Miami, Clark, Darke, Preble, Warren and Butler). There were three age categories: Teen (age 13-18), Adult (age 19-59) and Senior (age 60 and over). Winners are selected in each age category, with first place winning $100, second place $75 and third place $50. Prizes are donated by the Friends of the Dayton Metro Library.

A panel of judges read the entries in October, and a Poetry Party was held on November 10, at which the awards were presented.
