Poetry Contest

Welcome kids, to our holiday poetry contest,

Where your creativity and imagination will be put to the test.

We want to hear about your favorite holiday tradition,

Be it decorating the tree or baking in the kitchen.

Think of the sights, sounds, and smells of the season,

And put them into words with rhythm and reason.

Your poem can be short or long,

Just make sure it captures the magic of the holiday song.

You have until the deadline to submit your poem,

And we’ll pick a winner to bring home

A season pass to Glittering Lights in Las Vegas,

Where you can see the twinkling lights and holiday displays for ages.

So grab your pen and paper, and let your creativity flow,

Write about your holiday tradition, and watch your poem glow.

We can’t wait to read what you come up with,

And see the holiday spirit you’ll surely exhibit!
