Favorite Animal Contest

This year's theme was "Favorite Animal," and children in first through fourth grades were invited to compose a 12 to 16 line poem about their favorite animal from literature.  The Top 5 poems were selected by students from the Belmont English Club from 260 entries, and the Top 5 poets were invited to work with local professional songwriters Sherrié Austin, Kalisa Ewing, Brian Maher, Bill McDermott and Will Rambeaux to set their poems to music.  We hope that you enjoy them!
