On August 29 2012, between 7:00 and 8:00 p.m. at Bridge Square, in conjunction with a reading by poets, there will be a drawing for one of three prizes drawn from correctly completed quizzes.  All Northfield residents are invited to take the quiz; you do not have to be present to win, but to be eligible for the drawing quizzes must be mailed or delivered by the end of day on August 25 to the Northfield Public Library; quizzes must have contact information included.


The Quiz:  A line from each winning poem from 2011 and 2012 will have one or more missing words.  Your job is to write in the missing word or words.   The quiz form can be found here. The poems can be found in sidewalks around Northfield, posted at the Northfield Library, and on line at WinningPoems2011 and WinningPoems2012.
