Poetry Contest: Write a Haiku on How We Can Improve Education

April is National Poetry Month. To celebrate the month, we're having a fun poetry contest.

Here's how it works:

:: Post your haiku on how to best improve education below

:: Invite others to vote on your haiku. To vote, simply click on the thumbs up icon in the top right-hand corner of the post.

:: At the end of the month, the top three haikus with the most "thumbs ups" will have their haiku promoted on edutopia.org's homepage and in our enewsletter! Plus, you'll get a fabulous bag of art/poetry-inspired goodies (worth over $100!)!

Let the Haikus begin! Deadline is April 30 at midnight PDT.

P.S.: A good reminder about haikus: Haiku poetry type is a Japanese poem composed of three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables.

Sometimes tests are blessed.
Sometimes students need a rest.
