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.
S-Such a terrible day U-Under attack R-Rescue us V-Violence is evil I-I scream for help, but I am not the only one V-Vivid scenes of terror O-Over and over comes the gunfire R-Rice paddies on fire
