Introducing Our Poetry Contest Winners


Congratulations to the winners of our first-ever Invasive Species Poetry Contest!

Judges for the contest had a real challenge selecting winners from the nearly 100 amazing poems submitted by residents throughout the Tampa Bay watershed. Winners were named in three categories: Adults; Juniors 11 Years and Younger: and Juniors 12-17 Years. Each will receive a $250 first prize award.

The poetry contest shows that Tampa Bay residents of all ages really understand the harmful consequences of non-native, invasive plants and animals on our native habitats and inhabitants.

There were so many great poems entered in our contest that we are going to put them all in a downloadable booklet this Fall so that everyone can read them. In the meantime, enjoy reading the three contest winners.
