This summer, Birch Aquarium announced a Seahorse Poetry Contest in conjunction with the opening of Secrets of the Seahorse. There was a warm response to the contest and many entries were sent from all age categories, aquarium members and nonmembers alike. Art was encouraged but not a factor in judging the written submissions. Thanks to all who entered and congratulations to the winners below! Enjoy these winning entries and some of the seahorse-inspired artwork we received.
