Beyond Kultura’s Hurricane Poem Competition

The Beyond Kultura Events Foundation (BKE) is promoting storytelling, story writing and reading amongst the Youth. The Foundation has planned to publish a Hurricane story book in 2019. As part of this project, BKE calls on to all students of primary and high schools of Sint Maarten, Saba and Statia to put their hurricane expressions on paper.
This can be done as a poem or in the form of an expression in writing on a 1 pager A4.
The deadline for submission is 15th of November coming.
Schools are being asked to request their students to write a poem/expression of their experiences with the passing of hurricane Irma and send it not later than said date to with reference to ‘Hurricane poem’ and mentioning of the name-surname, age, school name, email address and phone number of the author. The poem should have a title and relate to the experience the author has with Hurricanes, especially hurricane Irma.
Morales, president of BKE says: ‘We hope schools’ managers can help with broadcasting this message in their schools and to stimulate the students to participate. The 5 best poems will be selected by our Writing Experts Team and will be published with consent of the winners and their parents.’
