PURE Encourages Budding Poets

By Philpickin @philpickin

PURE encourages budding poets PURE – the world-leading radio manufacturer - is once again teaming up with RSPB Wildlife Explorers, Fun Kids and Words for life to search for budding poets with the annual WildVerse poetry competition. Children and young people ‘aged up to 19’ are invited to submit their ‘wild poems’ which can be about a bug, a bird, a tree or any kind of wildlife. The deadline for entry is the 25th November and the winning entries will be read out on Fun Kids, the UK’s only radio station dedicated for children, between the 27th and 31st December 2011. The competition is open to RSPB Wildlife Explorers and any young people who are inspired to write about the outdoors. The main winner will also win a PURE Sensia internet-connected digital radio with color touchscreen, and the four runners up will receive a PURE ONE Flow internet-connected digital radio so they can listen to their poems being read out on Fun Kids.
The competition will be judged by Lauren St John, author of Blue Peter’s Book of the Year 2011 – Dead Man’s Cove. Lauren is a patron of the Born Free foundation and a passionate campaigner for animal conservation and welfare. For more information please read our blog post -
