Connor Poetry Prize

The Leacock Museum National Historic Site in Orillia is excited to announce that the 3rd annual Connor Poetry Prize is now accepting submissions from all over Ontario!
The Connor Prize was established by the late Harry Connor who created the Connor Prize to honour his wife Valerie, whose love of the arts and people touched many lives. This tribute to K. Valerie Connor carries her love for the arts into the community.
Valerie Connor is best remembered as a teacher and active community member who volunteered at the Leacock Museum. Val was a part of groups such as the School Belles and the Orillia Fine Arts Association, and in her free time she was also a talented painter and poet.
The Connor Prize awards cash prizes to successful entrants, judged by published Canadian Poets, at the Elementary, Secondary, and Adult level. There is no fee for entries at the Secondary and Elementary levels.
Entries are being accepted now until 11:59 pm on Tuesday, April 30th.
