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.
When a Child Dies When a child dies it's wrong to weep every sob and tear are far too loud for the womb it nestled in. When a child dies no star falls but climbs higher climbs forever on its damned starry way.
— Duska Vrhovac
