The Scottish Poetry Library has launched a new competition inviting children from P3-S4 to write poems about historic buildings.
The competition is supported by the Scottish Arts Council Lottery fund and the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland, as well as Historic Scotland, the Edinburgh World Heritage Trust, the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historic Monuments of Scotland and the Architectural Heritage Society of Scotland.
There will be two categories: P3-P7 and S1-S4. Entries have to reach the Scottish Poetry Library by March 31. Winners will be announced in June and their poems printed on posters and sent to Scottish schools. An exhibition of selected poems will go on show in Edinburgh in June and July. The winning poets will also receive poetry anthologies.
