Monterey County libraries sponsor Cowboy Poetry Contest for students

The Monterey County Free Libraries are inviting young poets under 18 years to submit their original poems in English or Spanish to the annual Cowboy Poetry Contest.

Deadline for entries is May 10.

Cowboy poetry is about:
Ranch work and those who perform it  -- cowboys and cowgirls!
Western lifestyle and the landscape of the West
Cowboy values and practices
Funny stories about life on the range…

Winners get fun prizes and will participate in the 27th annual Cowboy Music & Poetry Gathering on Sunday, July 13, 2014, and ride on the Cowboy Poetry tractor wagon in the Rodeo Parade on Saturday, July 12.
