June 20, 2009 - PRLog -- Poets Express is pleased to announce the short listed entries for Kids Express, a poetry competition for school aged children 8-12 and 13-17. The winners will be announced at Poets Express on 11 July 2009 and will receive an engraved trophy courtesy of McCarthy Sports, a special gift from New Street Jewellery, a framed award certificate from Kids Express (frame courtesy of The Card Shop), and an opportunity to perform their poem on stage during Poets Express.

Within three days of announcing Kids Express the competition was thrown open to international entries as requests from parents and kids poured in from across Ireland and around the world. Entries were received from Ireland, the UK, and India. The outstanding selection of poetry impressed the judges tremendously, and narrowing the list down was difficult.

Ruby Sullivan, Clonakilty, Co. Cork, 'Across the Water'
Sadhbh Sullivan, Bere Island, Co. Cork, ' Dusky'
