Poets of all ages submitted original poems during the month of April. Haiku, free verse, odes and sonnets—no matter what poetry style these poets wrote, all were celebrated at Dakota County Library’s annual poetry contest.
Thank you to everyone who entered the poetry contest, and congratulations to the winners for each age category.
