World Poetry Day Competition 2024

This year, Oak Tree hosted our first World Poetry Day competition to showcase and celebrate the work of our gifted residents.

We had two categories, ‘What living at Oak Tree means to me’, and ‘Free choice’, and we were blown away by the talent and creativity displayed in each of the 58 submissions we received!

Congratulations to our four winners on your amazing poems! We would also like to thank everyone for their incredible entries into our first World Poetry Day competition.

We look forward to making this an annual initiative and celebrating the magic of poetry again next year!
