The Dorothea Mackellar Poetry Awards are the oldest and largest poetry competition for school aged children in Australia.
The Awards aim to inspire students across Australia to express their thoughts creatively through poetry and, by doing so, support the legacy of Dorothea Mackellar and her legendary poem ‘My Country‘. Entries open on March 1st each year and close on the 30th June.
Optional theme is 'Waiting'. Download a poster here.
