THIS WEEK'S CONTEST
For a shout-out on Friday, March 20, entries are due Thursday, March 12 by 6 P.M. EST.
Write a Cento
You've probably heard of a patchwork quilt—but what about a patchwork poem? A cento is a poem made up only of lines from various other poems, rearranged into a new poem that makes sense. For this week’s contest, write a 5-10 line cento. Each line should come from a different poem. These can come from any poets you like—from Shel Silverstein to Emily Dickinson! Send us your cento and tell us where each line comes from.
Looking for inspiration? Check out entries from previous winners and runners-up on our blog.
Note: Students, your teachers must submit for you. Any video submissions should be horizontal.
By entering the contest, you agree to comply with the Official Rules.
Email your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org, including your name, school, city and contest entry.
HOW IT WORKS
Each Thursday evening, we'll announce the week's contest challenge on this page (and in your Week in Rap email). You have a week to submit your entry. The contest closes when we post a new contest at 6 P.M. Thursday night. Winners will be notified on Friday by 12 noon, and they will have one week to submit a video or photo to be included in the Week in Rap video with the shout out.
We'll shout out the winner's school in the next Week in Rap video (two weeks after the initial contest was posted)!
A little fine print: You must be 18 years or older to enter the contest. Teachers and parents can submit on behalf of their students and children, and can submit as many times as they'd like. By submitting a photo or video that features any students, teachers are agreeing that they’ve obtained parental consent to have the likeness of their child posted on the internet in a way that’s accessible by the public.
