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'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.

Inspire, evoke, plan.
Model discernment and growth.
Incorporate praise.

It takes a village
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!
