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.
The Rising Sun Here is my home --- where the sun rises and shines forever. I am alive now, and I will live like an infinitely bright sky. --- I am a man of the rising sun, I am the Japanese evergreen oak!
— Verica Zivkovic
