The Haikus should be ready for display in the Children’s Room. Use either 11 x 17 or 8.5 x 11 paper and include your own Nature Art to illustrate the Haiku. Selected entries will be displayed during the Asian Celebration on February 15 - 16. Entries will also be considered for publication in the summer 2014 issue of Skipping Stones. If your haiku is published, you'll receive a complementary copy of the issue.Haiku is a form of traditional poetry that comes from Japan.
It consists of three lines. The first line and third line both have five syllables and the middle line has seven.
Haiku appeals to the senses (sight, sound, smell, taste, touch) and touches the heart.
Nature Art can accompany your haiku, and it is encouraged!
Contest limited to K-12 students
