RiverLink invites student entries for Voices of the River program

RiverLink is inviting students in grades kindergarten through 12th grade to submit are and poetry about our local rivers in its annual Voices of the River program.

RiverLink press release:

RiverLink’s annual program, Voices of the River, would like to invite all students (K-12) of the French Broad Watershed to participate in creating art and poetry based on our local rivers. Participants are invited to describe in art and words what they see, feel, smell, hear, and think when near the river.

Submissions will be displayed in a month-long exhibit and judged by local artist and poets. Winners will be awarded prizes from various local sponsors.

Not only are we looking for beautiful art and poetry from our students, we are also looking for donations. Any help is welcome, we are asking for in-kind donations for the reception, gift certificates for prizes, as well as promotional funds. All donors will be given recognition during our reception/awards ceremony at AB Tech’s Holly Library on April 18.
