Vision+Voice Student Poetry Contest Now Accepting Submissions

Calling all poets! The second annual Vision+Voice student poetry contest is seeking your submissions.

Vision+Voice is a partnership between Austin ISD and the Department of Arts and Humanities at Austin Community College.

A panel of published poets will select one winning poem per grade and one for languages other than English at the elementary and secondary levels.

Winning poems will be paired with artwork by an ACC student and be made into posters to be displayed throughout Austin. A reception will be held in September to celebrate the V+V participants. 

All submitted poems will be published online via Voiceprint, the Austin ISD digital press. Poems of all languages are accepted.

The deadline for submissions is March 15, and winners will be announced April 15. Poems may be submitted online.
