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.
Those memories... Their bodies full of radiation Sadness and tears across the nation The memories burned into time for late families they create shrines They can never forget that ball of light still now they are always in sight those bodies were left for families shadows were left for history This time is never forgotten Now these places are full of life in spite of that big light
— Isabel Etchevarria
