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.
no peace in the world till a child will have no pencil to draw his dreams no peace in the world till a man will be missing dignity and hope for future no peace in the world till a country will need a gun to defend democracy no peace in our hearts till everyone of us will be deaf and blind or indifferent
