    The results of the IFLAC International Poetry Contest for Children

    The results of the 2011 IFLAC Poetry Contest for Children: Peace for All are in.

    IFLAC would like to thank the Judging Board of the Contest, all the children who took part in it, and the teachers who helped to organize the Contest and sent us the best poems.
    Special thanks are due to Poet Maria Cristina Azcona, Director of IFLAC in Argentina and South America, and President of the IFLAC Peace Contest for Children, for having organized this important project in such an efficient and professional manner.

    The seeds of peace planted in the minds and hearts of the children who wrote such beautiful peace poems, will guide them all their lives.

    We look forward to a new Poetry Contest in 2012.

    There were two language groups: English and Spanish. The winners are listed below. Congratulations!
