Congratulations to this year's winners!
In celebration of National Poetry Month, the South Carolina State Library is pleased to announce the nine winners in this year's Young Minds Dreaming poetry contest. These outstanding students showed exceptional creativity in showcasing this year's theme, "the joy of words." Guest author Pat Mora charged students to share the pleasure of wordjoy, of discovering new words, of listening to words, of hearing them rhyme. Their entries are prime examples of the immense talent that is on display in South Carolina schools.
