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.
I saw a man that was killed by The atomic bomb in Japan Useless, everything was destroyed Bombs fell on top of him or her Pile of human flesh I feel upset A man or woman was going to work and then atomic shocked I am sad because people died I feel like some of the people died for no reason.
