Learn Between the Lines Scholarship Slam — CLOSED


Wanna win $1,000 for college? Thought so. Keep reading to find out how.


April is National Poetry Month — the largest literary celebration in the whole world (!) — and a time when people from all walks of life unite to celebrate the impact poetry has had on them. Through reading and writing poetry we are able to learn new things about ourselves, each other, and the world around us.

What is something that poetry has taught you?

Did writing a poem about a problem actually help you solve it? Have you learned something new about a friend by stepping into their shoes and writing a poem from their perspective? Maybe you read a poem that changed your life and set you on a new path? Tell us in a poem about what poetry has taught you for your chance to win.

Note: This is a sweepstakes scholarship. That means a winner will be chosen from a random drawing.


  1. The basic requirements are this: (1) you are 25 years of age (or younger), and (2) you are a current or former high school student who will attend or is attending college within the U.S. or its territories.
  2. Add an original poem to Power Poetry by Wednesday, July 11, 2018. You'll need to register as a member of our community first. 

Got questions? Our scholarship FAQ and contest rules should have the answers. If they don't, feel free to contact us.
