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.

A nice paycheck and freedom;
It works for Finland!

Stop protecting status quo
Think outside the box

Adults should ask this:
Not what do all children need;
What does THIS child need?

Technology now
It's in their world and their hands
Let's start using it!

Don't be selective
Rich, poor, Black, White, neighborhood
Give all the same now!
