Safe Routes Haiku Contest

Building on the success of our student essay contest (read the winning essay here) and our more recent T-shirt design contest (see the winning artist, Aaron, sporting his design to the right), we've cooked up another student contest.

That's right, it's Haiku time. If the student in your life gets bored over the winter break, see if they can't cook up something worth sending in. There are some instructions to share with them below...

Sidewalks, puddles, splash!
Write a winter walk haiku
Send by the New Year

Instructions: A haiku is a non-rhymed verse genre of Japanese origin; it means “playful verse.” Write your own haiku in the English form of three lines, with a rhythm of five, seven and five syllables. The winner will receive a prize and their haiku will be printed in our newsletter.
