New York Times Found Poetry Student Contest

Found poems are “poems that are composed from words and phrases found in another text. A New York Times found poem, then, uses words and phrases taken from one or more Times articles, past or present — and since the paper has been publishing since 1851, choosing which Times article(s) to use is often the hardest part".
