The Town of Zionsville and the Zionsville Cultural District are co-sponsoring the third annual Step-on-Us Sidewalk Poetry Contest, ending May 29. The contest derives its name from the prizes it awards: The first- and second-place winners will have their poems permanently stamped onto a sidewalk in Zionsville. To enter, visit Poets must be 17 or younger and be a resident of Indiana. Each poet can enter up to two poems. Entry fees have been waived this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Poems must be original and have no more than six lines, with a maximum of 30 characters per line, including punctuation and spacing, and do not have to rhyme.
