We are delighted by the enthusiastic reception that the Poetry Contest received. One hundred and twenty-three poems were submitted by 81 poets and as you can well imagine, the jury members had quite a challenging task at hand.
But more important than statistics is the fact that many poems were beautifully crafted. After much deliberation and discussion, our jury members selected the three winning submissions and another four that received an Honourable Mention. These seven poems are now posted on our website. The winning submissions will be posted on the wrap-around of the Library staircase, in the Vanier Library, in the Grey Nuns Reading Room and several other locations.
