Beginning Monday, sixth- through 12-graders are invited to create an entry by stacking books on top of one another to create a poem using the words on the spines.

Participants must arrange the titles to create your poem, take a picture of the creation then submit the photo to Vortex staff with an entry form attached.

Entry forms can be picked up in the Vortex.

Submissions will be accepted through April 29.
