Brock University’s United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Chair is now accepting submissions for its annual Sustainability Poetry contest. There are two themes for the 2021 contest: the International Year of Peace and Trust, and the International Year of Fruits and Vegetables. All Niagara residents are eligible to enter their original, unpublished poems for this year’s contest, which includes categories for elementary, high school, and post-secondary students, as well as the general public. Poems will be accepted in English and French. Poems can be submitted online until 5 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 21 by visiting the UNESCO Chair’s website. Prizes, such as books and gift cards, will be awarded in each of the four categories. The winners will be publicly announced. All poems are also published in an e-book compilation.
