Help local poet send his poem to Mars

SANTA MARIA, Calif -

A local Central Cost poet is setting his sights high with getting his poetry to Mars.

James Kotsybar entered a NASA contest that allows poets from across the country to submit a haiku that will then be voted by the public. The winner then gets to have their poem on a CD that will travel through space on a MAVEN Mission Spacecraft going to Mars, making it the first poetry on another planet.

Kotsybar is currently in the top 20 but needs more votes. He says he has been writing poetry since he was 14 and knows that whomever finds his poem in the future will enjoy it very much.

Help Kotsybar accomplish his dream in being the first poet to send his work to Mars.

Follow the link and vote.
