The Fresno County Public Library's 14th annual Poetry Contest runs through April in celebration of National Poetry Month.
First-, second- and third-place winners will be awarded with gift card prizes ranging from $25 to $100.
All poems will be judged by local authors and poets and an awards ceremony will be held May 31 at the Unitarian Universalist Church at 2 p.m.
The event will be hosted by Fresno Poet Laureate James Tyner.
Poets in grades 3-12, college students from ages 18-24, and adults ages 18 and up are invited to submit their poems at www.fresnolibrarypoetry.org.
