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.
New Japan In old days of peace I fought the long winter term, With my candle light. But these days, I stay at home Lights of new Japan blind me.
