The Power of Poetry in the Schools

Indiana Writers' Consortium held its third annual Power of Poetry Project (PoPP) awards assembly on April 25, 2013. IWC recognized 51 fourth and fifth grade students for their achievements in poetry and art. The students came from schools in Crown Point, East Chicago, Gary, and Lowell.

The first four pictures in this post show some of the winners. The last one shows the hard-working volunteers who were the backbone of the project .

PoPP was funded by a grant from the Crown Point Community Foundation and a grant from the Lake County Community Fund of the Legacy Foundation as well as by individual and corporate donations. IWC thanks them and all the volunteers who made the project possible.


IWC is an IRS Section 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization whose mission is to inspire and build a community of creative writers.
