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.
BETTER WORLD I want to live in a world where everyone has the right to await Freedom. I want to live in a world where dreaming is dignity and not a shame, where there is no need to reconsider one's importance in the human society, but it's rather a birthright.
— Walter William Safar
