Instructor's 5th Annual Poetry Contest for Kids

Poetry is a wonderful way to get your students excited
about the magic of words. Invite your budding young poets
in grades K3 and 48 to take out their pencils or cozy up
to their computers and get ready to enter Instructor's 5th
Annual Student Poetry Contest, sponsored by Wendy's
Deletree Conmigo, a bilingual spelling bee and
curriculum-enhancing program. For the best results, lead
students through a writing workshop process in which they
brainstorm, draft, revise, and proofread their poems before
submission. Poems can be on any subject and in any style.
Winners in each category will receive a Dell Computer
System courtesy of Wendy's Deletree Conmigo.

You can win: Winning poems and runners-up in each category
will be featured in the April 2004 issue or on our Web site
and at Individual winners

Wendy's (value: $500+). Runners-up will receive $25
Scholastic gift certificates.
