We are happy to post on this site a sampling of the winning poems from the Community College Poetry Competition. The same poems are presented here in two formats: (1) alphabetical, by author or by college, and (2) in a page-turner, anthology format, entitled "Poetry for the Mind's Joy."

Winning poems were selected during a competition administered this spring by the Community College Humanities Association. Winners were chosen at the local level by the participating campuses. We hope this sampling will give you an idea of the literary creativity on today's community college campuses.
