KPRC and WITS have teamed up to sponsor a poetry contest for Houston kids in grades K-5. Post your poem on the WITS Houston facebook page with the tag #MomPoem2014 or email it to [email protected] to enter. Complete guidelines are here. In case you’d like a prompt to get your poem going, here is one idea:

Moms teach us so many things, including the details of daily life and the big ideas that help us understand what’s important in the world.

My Mom
My mom teaches me all kinds of stuff
like how to make fried chicken that
everyone in the world will gobble up
and how to iron pleats in a skirt(!) and
fold those weird sheets with no corners
and how to ignore the annoying haters.
She teaches me how to study for a test
and how to laugh at my “big” problems.
Thanks, Mom. You’re as good as all
the moms out there. Have a good day!
By Krenie’sha, 6th grade
