After completing a poetry unit, 4th grade AIG students were invited to write and submit a poem for the Carl Sandburg Poetry Contest. The contest, in honor of Asheville poet and author Carl Sandburg, encouraged young students to write poetry based on the theme of “Dream”.  Addison M. of Bethel Elementary won Honorable Mention for her poem, “My Wish”. Addison was invited to accept her award and read her poem at a reception for the winners.
