Roses are red, violets are blue,
It’s the weekend now, what are your kids up to? Have them grab a pen or you can be their scribe,
To write an original poem about a day in their life!
Or whatever is on their mind right now,
It’s a contest for kids to express their “wows”!

Let’s celebrate NATIONAL POETRY MONTH!🥳
📝Calling all future writers and poets!!
What is it like being a child in 2020? We invite children ages 5 - 12 to express their thoughts through poetry.
Families: Encourage your child to write about some of their favorite things, or what makes them happy, excited, afraid, sad, or mad. What is it like being a child in 2020?
Three poets will be chosen to receive a Level1 Plus Membership for the Akron Children's Museum! More details in the comments below.

🚨Essential worker alert! Acme Fresh Market is a strong supporter of the Museum. They sponsor our Birthday Party Club and the Down On The Farm Exhibit, which teaches the farm to table concept to children. Now, more than ever, we’re thrilled to show them we’re #inthistogether. We want them to know how much we and the entire community appreciates their service.
✏️Children of all ages (and adults, too!) are being asked to help boost morale of those working the frontlines in our grocery stores by writing a brief note or poem, recording a 30-second video, or drawing an inspirational picture to help brighten the day of those working at or visiting one of the 16 Acme Fresh Market stores. Email submissions to: [email protected] and Print2Promote will print your message to be delivered to the stores! #essentialworkers #thankyou #boostmorale #kidscandothis #takes5mins #poetrymonth
