Enter the Cathedral Historic District Sidewalk Poetry Contest

Calling all Sioux Falls poets! Siouxland Libraries is partnering with the Cathedral Historic District to provide an opportunity for you to put your stamp on this beautiful Sioux Falls district.

The Cathedral Historic District Neighborhood Watch Group recently received a grant from the City of Sioux Falls to incorporate sidewalk poetry into the neighborhood. You can submit original poems to be on the sidewalks this summer. We are looking for short poems that provide delight and promote outdoor reading. Poems may be uplifting, funny, thoughtful—anything appropriate for the general public. Selected poems will be stamped into new sidewalk panels in the Cathedral Historic District.

One adult (ages 18 and older) and one youth (ages under 18) will be awarded a $100 prize and will have his or her poem installed in a Cathedral Historic District sidewalk panel.

Click here to submit your poems by July 12, 2014. For more information, call Siouxland Libraries at 367-8720.
