Students in grades 3-12 from all Hawaii schools are invited to submit entries for the 2010-2011 Star Poets Contest, with readings and an awards ceremony to be held next May at Paliku Theatre in Kaneohe.

They may be mailed to Star Poets Contest c/o Susan St. John, Windward Community College, 45-720 Keaahala Road, Kaneohe HI 96744. The top prize is $50 in each grade, and winning poems will be published in the Star Poets Journal.
