ONTESTS HAVE BEEN an integral part of the CFCP, Inc. activities for many years. They are intended to encourage the writing and submission of good poetry. Presently, two separate contests are open to both members and the public at large.

These are held annually, one for grades 7 through 12 and one for ages 18 and older, with the winners announced and prizes awarded at the Convention.

After a break of several years, plans are underway to again offer these contests for the winter/spring of 2019. Watch for announcements regarding the flyers this fall.

You may download a PDF version of each annual contest flyer here. Note that in order to read these fliers, you must have Adobe Acrobat Reader™ installed.
