Some of you you will of course recognise Chris Bem(ENT Consultant/Surgeon/Doctor at Bradford Royal Infirmary) who was the sole judge for our Covid-19 Children's Poetry Competition last year. I am pleased to say that he is now officially joining us with our annual summer children's poetry competition Poem:99.
You will see and hear a lot more from Chris Bem throughout the duration of the competition talking about Poem:99, children's education/wellbeing, literacy and all the other wonderful things that he is passionate about.
To learn more about Dr Chris Bem you can go to my blog page and read more about him from there.
A humongous THANK YOU to Dr Chris Bem for joining us here at poetrybysheena. I am looking forward to working alongside him and introducing to him some wonderful people associated with Poem:99/poetrybysheena and of course our young budding poets.
It's here, and we are live. For terms and conditions and entry form see below. You can find out more about the judges by visiting the blog page.

Due to unprecedented times the older age category did not attract entries to the competition. Therefore, a decision was taken to allocate the prize fund as above. There was a joint score in the 5-7 category which is why 3 prizes were allocated here.
Massive thank you to the following: my sponsors, to Beckfoot Heaton Primary School, Claire Malcolm at New Writing North, my wonderful judges, Mussarat, Tony and Tahira, to the parents, to the children, to the winners, anyone who helped promote the competition in any shape or form, last but not least my mentor - you all made Poem:99 2020 possible. Well done from me!
If there is anyone who would like to sponsor next year's competition please call 07935177562 or email email@example.com

Unfortunately, there were no entries from the 13-15 category and therefore a decision was made that we would select 2 winners from the catergory with the most entries, which was the 10-12 catergory.
OMG...you're all winners! Rave about this great achievement with your friends and family. Get it out there on your social media platforms... but wait for it, you will all have to attend a ceremony to receive your prizes, EXCITING :)
May i take the opportunity to thank everyone who has been connected to Poem:99. For those who didn't win trust me, you are all winners simply for entering and trying. Hoping to be back next year God willing, until then.....keep rhyming!!
