Poetry Competition – 29,000 Reasons Campaign

Graphic stating "29,000 Reasons. Fundraising for Dundees Youth Work. 28th August - 11th September

Extended by one more week!!

We are proud to be named as one of the organisations involved with 29,000 Reasons – a fundraising campaign aiming to raise money for the Dundee Youthwork Network.

As part of the campaign, we have organised a creative competition everyone can get involved in:

Write a Poem about Scotland for a chance to win High Street vouchers!

Poems can be rhyming (or not!) short limericks, or in long prose – just as long as it’s about our Bonnie Scotland!

We are inviting submissions that will be judged by our “expert” panel under the following categories:

  • Under 12’s
  • Ages 12-18
  • Over 18’s

(A High St voucher prize will be given to the winner of each category and promoted across all our online platforms)

How to enter

Simply send your poem along with your name and age to [email protected]

The competition is FREE to enter, however, as we are running this campaign to raise awareness of 29,000 Reasons, any kind donations to their Just Giving Page would be greatly appreciated.

The competition deadline has been EXTENDED by one more week and will now close on Monday 20th September at 12 noon. 

The winners of the competition will be announced shortly after the closing date.
