Students in kindergarten through 12th grade in Madera, Fresno, Kings and Tulare Counties may enter the American Chemist Society’s 2013 Illustrated Poetry Contest, an element of Fresno State’s Earth Day celebration. The contest deadline is April 3; poems should feature the theme, “Our Earth: Handle with Care,” and be no more than 40 words long and conform to either haiku, limerick, ode, ABC, free verse, end rhyme or blank verse format. Winners in four age categories will be announced April 27 on campus. Fresno State’s Chemistry Club and the Department of Chemistry are co-sponsors with the San Joaquin section of the American Chemist Society.
