Student Poetry Contest

Student Poetry Contest for 2018

The Onslow Commission for Persons with Disabilities and the City of Jacksonville are sponsoring their Annual Poster, Poetry, and Essay contest for Onslow County (public and private) and Base School students to help promote “Disabilities Awareness Week” in May 2018.

Our 2018 Theme

“See Me for Me!”

This year’s theme is “See Me for Me!” To us, this means looking beyond someone’s disability and seeing them as a person and not just a person with a disability. What does it mean to you? Create an Original Poster or Poem or Essay about your own observations or feelings when you meet or see a person with a disability. As you prepare your poster, poem or essay, reflect on your very own community, your friends, loved ones, classmates, and others and express your ideas to help others see beyond the disability and see the person.

Poster, Poetry, or Essay must be an original work.
