The North Andover Garden Club recently announced Taila Brown, a freshman at North Andover High School, as the winner of the statewide Environmental Poetry Contest Award. The club had sponsored Brown’s entry into the contest.
Brown’s poem, entitled “A Frog’s Point of View,” was chosen as the best poem in the state among ninth grade entries. The poem now moves onto the national judging by the National Garden Clubs, Inc.
The poetry competition was created to develop and creatively express environmental awareness in general and the frogs’ role to the health of the environment.
