The top fifty poems will be printed in the BPP 2017 anthology.
Six short-listed poets will be invited with their families and teachers to a prize giving on National Poetry Day, 28th September, in St Pancras Station, London, where the winner will be announced.
The winning poet will receive £1000 (£500 for their school), Eurostar tickets and will be crowned St Pancras Laureate for twelve months. All six finalists are invited on a 3-day poetry workshop in Spring 2018.
Every teacher who sends in the entries from their class will be entered in a draw to win a poet visit for the school.
