COSHOCTON -- Students in grades 7 to 12 are invited to the Coshocton Public Library on Thursday, April 11 from 6 to 7 p.m. to celebrate National Poetry Month with a poetry slam.

Teens may enter the slam in one of the following categories or both: Original work is for original poetry that has been written by the teen that has entered it and will be judged on poetry writing only, not on delivery; or recited work is for a teen who is reading someone else's poem, by a famous poet, a friend, a family member, or anyone other than the reader. This category will be judged strictly on the delivery/interpretation of poem.

The winner and runner-up in each category will receive a Tim Horton's gift card.

All contents should be library-appropriate. (If questionable, contact Jennifer at the library.)

Registration is required.

Poems will be judged by a guest panel.

Snacks will be provided.

Space is limited. Call 740-622-0956 to sign-up.
