Collab is excited to announce the winners of its 2015 Poetry Writing Contest. We had nearly over sixty entries, which is a huge number – more than we normally receive for our poetry contests. As always, the editors had a difficult time with selecting their top three, as this year’s entries had a much greater range than we can recall from years past. Among our final five poems were poems that were humorous, visually engaging, rich with wonderful imagery, clever, and thought-provoking. Many stood out for being particularly skilled in one way or another.
This year’s winners are…
In third place, with her poem, “Gossip” is senior Sarah Iler.
This year’s runner up is junior Crystal Curran for “Wanting Faith”
And our contest winner, earning her a $25 gift card to True North cafe is “A Letter to Dannon Light and Fit Yogurt” by junior Aysha Afzal
Congratulations Aysha, Crystal, and Sarah, and thank you to all who entered! Stay tuned for Aysha’s poem on this website!
