Annual Celtic Poetry Contest

The Arkansas Scottish Festival will once again sponsor a poetry contest.  There is no fee to enter.  Poems may be any style, and any length, but must have a Celtic (Scottish, Irish, Welsh, Briton, Galician, etc.) theme or traditional form. Entries will be judged this year by last year's contest winner, Susan Mcdonald. The winning poem will be read (by the author if possible) during the Celtic Concert on Thursday night of the festival.  The author need not be present at the festival to win.

First Prize - $100

Second Prize - $50

Third Prize - $25
