The Castro Valley Educational Foundation sponsors a Poetry and Art Show for all Middle School and High School students. Middle School students submit their poems while High School students submit their poems that are also illustrated in some form of art. With the help of the CVUSD English teachers, the poems and art are reviewed and 25 finalists are selected from Middle school students and 25 finalists are selected from High School students.
An event is scheduled at the Castro Valley Library where the finalists read their poems and the art work is displayed. Then the winners are announced and prizes are awarded. After the show all the finalists' submissions are collected into an anthology and published on behalf of the students. These anthologies are presented to the schools and the library. Community members can also purchase a copy of the anthology through the publisher's website.
