This is me: I Am… Poetry competition

This Is Me: I Am… was a poetry competition run by ‘Young Writers’, which encouraged students to express themselves through verse. With no limits on length or poetic style, the competition gave students the opportunity to take control of what and how they wanted to write, and how best to describe themselves. Who they are and what they want to be.

The competition was open to all 11-18 years olds in the United Kingdom and winners faced a tough selection process.

Y7 student Oliver, wrote a wonderfully positive poem about himself and his life and was selected for publishing in the book, along the many other winners from across the country

Congratulations to Oliver, we are all immensely proud, this is a great achievement to have work published at such a young age.

There is a copy of the book in the LRC if any students would like to read Oliver’s poem.
