A competition celebrating the lives and stories of the UK's key workers - teachers or nurses, cleaners or couriers, carers or shopworkers – who have kept our nation going during the pandemic is free to enter, has three categories, and is open to anyone aged 11 or over.

The Poetry for Good competition's three categories are Growing Word, Written Word and Spoken Word. Each category will have one winner and one runner up, with a cash prize of £300 for each winner and £150 for each runner up. There will also be an additional special prize of £150 for the best overall poem about cleaners and the contribution that they make.

The judges will be Cecilia Knapp, Katherine Lockton and Rachel Long. The competition has been devised by Clean for Good, an ethical workspace cleaning company for London, dedicated to delivering fair pay and dignified work for cleaners.

The deadline is 9 April. More details
