All contest entries will be reviewed by the Contest Entry Compliance Committee. The committee will read all entries to ensure that the contest rules are being followed. If your entry is disqualified you will not be refunded the entry fees. The committee will review the entries when the deadline is reached. The voting will begin after the committee determines that all entries qualify and disqualify those that do not. This contest is open to all members. Past contest winners can join the contest. A voting booth will be created shortly after the deadline is reached. At that time all participants will be contacted so they can vote.

The voting booth will include this summary of the contest:

    Children are curious explorers, eager to learn about the world they inhabit. A popular method of delivering facts, stories, and information to them is through poems. Kids love the regular rise and fall of meter and the delicious sound of rhymes. (Don't we all?)

    In this contest, you are challenged to write a poem that will appeal to a child. The subject matter is open- rewrite a fairy tale or nursery rhyme or spin an enchanted piece all your own about animals, families, seasons, favorite children's activities or games, school, food, pretend worlds - you name it. Keep in mind that short is often better for small attention spans- and better to have read over and over.

    Your submission must be 'clean' in every way. Nothing with flags will be accepted. Keep your posts under 300 words, please.

    Good luck!
