This year sees our 5th Annual Lest We Forget Poetry Competition. We are looking forward to another poignant collection of personal responses to war. The theme of the competition this year is: I AM Remembered. Your poem can be set in the past, present or future. The only restriction is your imagination.
A small number of finalists will be invited to read their poems in the Hall of Memories on ANZAC Day, 25 April at 1pm and each finalist will receive a gift pack from the Museum shop.
There are three entry categories:
• 10 years and under
• 11 to 15 years
• 16 years and older
