Poetry Contest

The Land Trust seeks student poems for the 2018 Calendar

The Crested Butte Land Trust is looking for Haiku poems for publication in the 2018 Calendar. The contest is open to middle school and high school students.

Twelve poems will be selected for publication – one for each month of the year. Feel free to submit as many poems as you’d like. However, only one poem per person may be published.


Please submit poems in a three line format: 5 syllables in the first line, 7 syllables in the second line, and 5 syllables in the final line.

Poems should be about nature, and can reference a specific month or season, but this is not a requirement.

You can submit poems to: outreach@cblandtrust.org.  Be sure to include your full name, your age, and your preferred contact information.

DEADLINE: extended to Wednesday, March 29, 2017.

QUESTIONS? Contact Claire at (970) 349-1206 or outreach@cblandtrust.org.
