Dakota County Library

Poetry Contest
You're a poet — come to know it
​Poets of all ages are invited to get creative and submit their original poems into Dakota County Library’s annual poetry contest in April.

Participants can enter one poem or rap of no more than two pages. No offensive or derogatory language is permitted.

Poems will be judged in the following age groups: adult, teens ages 12–14, teens ages 15–18, children ages 6–9 and children ages 10–11. Judges will determine the first-, second- and third-place winners based on creativity, clarity, style, form and meaning. Winning poems will be published on the Dakota County Library website.
