Call for Entries: 4th Annual Ode to the ZIP Code

Feb. 20, 2019: Poetry Contest seeks poems inspired by Local ZIP Codes—
your ZIP Code does matter. It's not just an address, it's an identity!

Entries are currently being accepted for the fourth annual Ode to the ZIP Code poetry contest, a partnership of The Fair Housing Center, The Arts Commission, Toledo Lucas County Public Library, and Toledo City Paper.

This free poetry contest invites individuals to submit short poems inspired by their ZIP Code, where the number of words in each line of the poem is determined by the corresponding digit of their ZIP Code. All ages and neighborhoods are welcome.

Entries will be accepted online February 15 through March 1 at: https://toledocitypaper.com/online/ottzc-2019-submit/.

Winners selected from both the youth (15 and under) and adult (16 and older) categories will be awarded cash prizes. Top poems will also be published in Toledo City Paper. All entries will be juried, and finalists will get the chance to read their poem at a special event on April 18, 2019, details to be announced.

April is both National Poetry Month and Fair Housing Month. The Ode to the ZIP Code event is a fun and creative way to engage the community in talking about where we live and how it affects our experiences and life outcomes.
