Wildling Museum Earth Day Poetry Contest
The TheWildling Museum of Art and Nature is pleased to announce that it is sponsoring an environmental poetry competition with the theme “Why Earth Day Matters,” inviting writers to interpret the importance of Earth Day in a variety of ways. The competition is open to Santa Barbara County residents of all ages and the deadline to submit is Monday, March 22, 2021at 5 p.m.
The competition is a celebration of Earth Day, taking place this year on April 22, 2021, and is intended to highlight the importance of standing up to protect the planet’s dwindling natural resources and working against the threats of climate change.
Poetry entries will be judged by poet Sojourner Kincaid Rolle, former Poet Laureate of Santa Barbara (2015-2017), and the top three poems will be announced and read at the annual Santa Barbara Earth Day virtual celebration organized by the Community Environmental Council (CEC). For its 2021 Earth Day celebration, CEC will be focusing on climate leadership. The Wildling is thrilled to be supporting this year’s Earth Day celebrations with this poetry competition.
