From — Rattle Anthology
Deadline: June 15, 2014
The annual Rattle Young Poets Anthology deadline is one month away. If you have children who’ve written wonderful poems this year, or are a teacher with students, submitting is very easy: A parent/guardian may email poems and contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org. Teachers may select up to two students per year and submit on their behalf, with assurance that you’ll be able to send a parent’s signed permission upon acceptance.
The poet must be age 15 or younger when they wrote the poem. That’s pretty much all there is. Full guidelines are here:
Selected poems will be published in the 2015 anthology, releasing at the end of this year, and also online. Poets receive two complimentary print copies.

Poetry Contest in these categories: Grades K-3, 4-6, 7-9, and 10-12
Deadline: August 19, 2014
From their website: “The purpose of our poetry contest is to bring recognition to student writers. Winners share thousands in cash and prizes. In addition to the winning entries, other entries of high merit are accepted to be published in our hard-bound anthology. With the publication being regionally based, students are competing against their peers in both age and location. Within the guidelines of accepting less than 50% of the poems and essays that are entered in each contest, the contest is selective so that it is an honor to be accepted, yet not so exclusive that it is discouraging to enter. Unlike many other organizations who sponsor writing contests, there is no entry fee and no required purchase in order to become published. We take pride in the fact that our staff is comprised of teachers, professors and writers.”
