BLS Poetry Competition


The British-Luxembourg Society
Poetry Competition

Some years ago, the British Luxembourg Society held popular quizzes and we decided to revive this competitive spirit in the form of a Poetry Competition.

The poems were a outstanding response to this idea and your video recordings were very special.
As judge Marilyn Clark expressed it, they ……. "come from the heart".

A special thank you to the five children who took part in the Junior Category - their talented contributions speak for themselves.

The poems were read and viewed by two judges, Marilyn Clark, BLS member, and Chris Atkinson, a Vice President of BLS (Education).

We decided that the entries were so good that they all deserved prizes and diplomas, with five "main" prizes in the following categories: Native Speaker, non-Native Speaker, special Presentation Prize and Junior (13 and under).

The texts of the poems are available here - I'm sure that you will agree with the judges.
