Fourth Annual Haiku Contest
April is National Poetry Month which means it is time for the fourth annual Freshkills Park Haiku Contest! We will be celebrating by asking you to share your impressions, experiences, thoughts and ideas of what Freshkills Park is, will be, and what it means to you- in haiku form. A haiku is a type of poem written in three lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables for a total of 17 syllables. For example, here is one of our winners from last year:
The bike paths I will ride on
My old love letters
We will be awarding prizes to the top three winners in the adult category and to the winner in the youth category (under 18 years old). Submit for a chance to receive a limited edition Freshkills Park hat. Please indicate for which category you are entering.
Email your haiku, along with your name to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, April 27, at 5:00 p.m.
