River of Words poetry and artwork on display

Switzer Library

October 18 @ 8:00 am - October 27 @ 5:00 pm

Please visit the Charles D. Switzer Library to view the River of Words Project student poetry and artwork display.

The River of Words Project is a program designed to help K-12 students understand their sense of place by studying a watershed in their own environment then expressing what they discover through poetry and art.  The art and poetry is then entered into a state-wide contest.

Georgia entries are judged by the Georgia Center for the Book and by the GA Environmental Protection Division.

About 50 poems and artworks are selected as winners each year in Georgia. We celebrate with the student winners, their families and teachers in an awards ceremony held in Decatur each spring.

The winning works are also reproduced to become part of a traveling exhibit, hosted by the Georgia Center for the Book, which moves to libraries throughout the state.
The display will be available for viewing until 10/27/2017 , across from the check out desk in the library
