School Poetry and Illustration Contest Gerardo Diego

On 30th May and 6th June, Prizes of the Poetry and Illustration School Contest Gerardo Diego were awarded at Primary and Secondary levels respectively.

This contest has been held since 1987, the year in which the poet died. Each year the Pozuelo de Alarcón Council pays homage to one of the most illustrious neighbours of the city as well as promoting the artistic and literary creativity of our students.

This year 2,300 students from 17 schools have participated and the jury has judged 266 illustration works and 258 of poetry.

Among our students we have had several finalists and two of them have been a first and a second prize.

Congratulations to you all!
