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.
It's a Tragedy It Had To Go This Way Crying and yelling That's all everyone heard. People Were Dying And There Was Nothing To Do Bombs were Crashing everywhere And Everyone Was Frightened.
