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.
Backfire War won’t solve problems But will destroy our planet We become our bait. When Japan was bombed Our houses shook like earthquakes We become our foes.
— Jeffrey Zhang-Sun
