|Brinkley Howard Won First Place in 2014 Oklahoma Lore Youth Poetry Competition|
Brinkley Howard of Collinsville won the first place prize for the 2014 Oklahoma Lore Youth Poetry contest. The annual contest is sponsored by the Poetry Society of Oklahoma and is open for Oklahoma students in public, private or who are homeschooled and in grades 1-12. The theme this year was "Oklahoma Lore". Each grade had to write a poem about a designated Oklahoma emblem, symbol or tradition. The 7th grade category that Brinkley was assigned was the Oklahoma State Plant, the Mistletoe.
Brinkley's poem is listed below.
If you aren't aware of me, then you should
I represent you, I am tough and nimble
Land of the red folk, we are all created equal
I stood up strong and waited for fate
We have stood strong, brave and united for the fight
I am proud to be your Oklahoma State Plant, The Mistletoe
