#ShairiSmart Competition

Discover the brilliance of Kenya’s youth!

We proudly present the #ShairiSmart Junior Secondary and High Schools Poem Competition where we are giving young poets the chance to ignite their creativity. We believe in providing a platform for their creative genius to shine, fostering a love for words and expression.

Join us in celebrating the power of poetry as we amplify their words and voices and nurture a community of wordsmiths for generations to come.

Poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquility. ~ William Wordsworth
