Winning Poem:
By: Kelsey Olmen of Green Lake School District

With Every Small Breath
With every small breath I feel alive
The freshness heals me and lets me thrive
With every small breath I feel I can fly
With the birds who enjoy the air as much as I
With every small breath I sing and run around
With all the air-lovers that I have found
With every small breath that is clean and fair
I am healed by the wind with love and care
As everyone else is in this world with clean, fresh air in every small breath.

Second Place:

Air, Air Everywhere

Air, air everywhere Beautiful, clean, crisp air.
The grass is green, the sky is blue
What does clean air mean to you?

Stop, wait here.
Do you hear that breeze whispering in your ear?
Fresh, cool, lovely breeze
Will overcome you with ease.

Smog, gas, smoke
These air hitchhikers may make you choke.
In your lungs these will stay
Make a stand, say this in not okay.

Trees and greens
Will help, so by all means.
You can plant, garden or grow
To keep the pollution low.

Air, air everywhere
Beautiful, clean, crisp air.
The grass is green, the sky is blue
Ask yourself what you can do.

Air, Air Everywhere

Oh where, oh where can I find some clean air? Up high in the sky or way down in the ground, where is the air, I will tell you it is all around. Air is to share because it is everywhere. Donít pollute or you might end up in a dispute.

Smoking, fires, fumes and debris limit birds flying and ability to see. Limiting pollution is a great solution.

I do not want to see illness or plants that do not thrive or smog over cities that affect us when we drive. If everyone does their share, the gift will be CLEAN AIR!
