2014 Favorite Story Contest

This year's theme for the 5th Annual Contest was once again "Favorite Story" and children in first through fourth grades in Metro Public Schools were invited to compose a 12 to 16 line poem about their favorite story from literature.  From 118 entries, 5 finalists were selected by the Belmont English Club.  The Top 5 poets worked with local professional songwriters Seth Alley, Sherrié Austin, Maddie Larkin, Bill McDermott and Will Rambeaux to set their poems to music.
