Every Age Counts! Free Amateur Poetry Contest
The Seniors’ Council of Douglas County with its partners, Changing the Narrative, the Douglas County School District and Douglas County Libraries, are combining these two experiences in a unique multigenerational activity in the form of a poetry contest. The purpose of the contest is to raise awareness about ageism and how it negatively affects everyone in our community.  Helpful information is available via this link

We are encouraging everyone, regardless of age, residing in Douglas County to submit one original unpublished poem about anti-ageism in either English or Spanish. Need an idea? Describe a positive experience with a person of a different generation (younger or older), a person you admire or a creative vision of how different our world could be if we respect a person’s talents and ability without considering their age.  Entries will be accepted from Aug. 1 through Sept. 15.  Judging will occur between Sept. 16 and Oct. 15.,  and prizes will be awarded at a special ceremony on Nov. 16 from 1 – 3 p.m. at the Highlands Ranch Library, 9292 Ridgeline Blvd., Highlands Ranch, CO.
