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.
PEACE Do you remember The First World War Or the Second World War? How many people died? But why? I ask why? Let's not make errors again Let's care for the world Let's give a helping hand Let's spread peace in the world Do you see the golden key? Its name is PEACE, yes, it is!
