The Poetry for Peace contest was held from 15 September until 14 October 2011. The winners were anounced at a ceremony at UN headquarters in New York.
Below is one of the contest entries.
Seeds of Peace Take a handful of kindness seeds. Sprinkle generously with hope and understanding. Pour on compassion and a shared responsibility then weed out violence and jealousy. Give every voice a quiet listener and peace will bloom in a world that celebrates the true meaning of justice, equality, dignity.
