Student poetry submissions

In recognition of National Poetry Month, we asked area students to send us their original poems.

And they did — roughly 625 of them.

We published some of our favorites from Richland, Lexington and Kershaw County area schools in April 9 Neighbors editions, and here at thestate.com/neighbors.

Today, we’re publishing all student poetry submissions.

Thanks to all students — as well as their parents and teachers — who helped get the poetry to us!
