St. Paul sidewalk poetry contest kicks off (via KARE11)

Saint Paul, Minnesota.

Residents of St. Paul have a chance to see their original poetry immortalized on a city sidewalk.

Mayor Chris Coleman has announced the kickoff of this year’s St. Paul Sidewalk Poetry Contest.

Starting Monday, St. Paul residents can submit short, original poems for a chance to win $100 and see their poem stamped in a sidewalk.

Coleman says the contest “continues St. Paul’s rich tradition of promoting arts and literature.”

The project was started in 2008. So far, 46 poems are stamped on more than 700 sidewalks citywide.
