Winners of the Poetry Contest

The winners of the Wake County teen poetry contest have been announced.  There were 227 entries this year, so the competition was tight.  Congratulations to all the winners and all of the brave teens who were willing to put their writing out to be evaluated.  We are very proud of you.  The winners and runners up will be invited to read their poems at a poetry reading at the Cameron Village Library on Sunday, April 26th at 2 pm.  We invite everyone to join us.
