The Teen Poetry Contest was part of the celebration of National Library Week 2010 and National Poetry Month. At Franklin Lakes Public Library and area schools, teens were given a contest entry form and encouraged to create original poems or song lyrics. We received 25 awesome poems and three winners were chosen by an array of local judges in addition to recognition of two honorable mention submissions. Second and Third Place prizes were generously provided by Access Self Storage in Franklin Lakes.
