The National Schools Project selection panel is made up of educators who select the best poems submitted from teachers and librarians countrywide, ones that are especially well-written for the age level of the student. According to the National Schools Project website, “Poetry provides a means for students to express themselves and to develop their creative talents. We want kids excited about writing!” This year’s Young American Poetry Digest will be published in October. There is no charge to the student for publication. A free copy of the book is sent to the participating school library, and any school can request a complimentary copy at any time.

Authentic Learning in the Berkshires—Founded in 1971, the Great Barrington Rudolf Steiner School provides a developmentally appropriate, experiential approach to education for students from preschool through early adolescence, starting with a warm welcome to learning in parent-infant/toddler classes, preschool and kindergarten. Early childhood classrooms are situated in their own building, equipped with natural playthings and surrounded by gardens, fields and woods. On the other side of the 32-acre campus, the elementary school for first through eighth grade students (from the Berkshires, northern Connecticut and New York’s Columbia County) provides a balance of rigorous academics and the arts, preparing children for their choice of high school and college. One of more than 1,000 Waldorf schools worldwide, a movement of independent schools developed in the early twentieth century by Austrian educator, scientist and philosopher Rudolf Steiner, the Great Barrington Rudolf Steiner School operates from the core understanding that engaging all aspects of the human being—intellectual, spiritual and physical—provides a truly well-rounded education.
