Shark Poetry Winners

Published August 27, 2009 Posted by
Know any shark lovers? The Aquarium of the Pacific (Long Beach, CA) held a poetry contest to salute the Aquarium’s Shark Summer. Aquarium members and guests were invited to participate; poets were asked to express their feelings about sharks and/or rays and to use no more than 200 words. All entries were judged by poets Will Alexander and Jeffrey Yang and Aquarium President and CEO Jerry Schubel and four winners were selected:

First Place - Ellaraine Lockie
Second Place - Anna Leahy
Third Place (tied) - Benjamin Morris and Donna Ashbaugh

All poems are available on the aquarium's website.

We welcome any/all Feedback.
