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.
The Wind Sometimes the wind whispers A secret into my ear Other times it roars So that I can hardly hear It shakes the trees and blows leaves Dancing around in the air.
