Ah, springtime … sunny days with warmer temperatures, cherry blossoms, and baseball. Even those of you still stuck in snow are thinking spring. But what do nonprofits think when they think spring? Only a haiku can tell.
It’s a Blue Avocado haiku contest!
Are you experiencing a wave of optimism and rebirth … or are you facing impending doom of cutbacks or a shutdown (like the federal government). No matter the situation, say it in a haiku.
The theme is: What are nonprofits feeling in the spring of 2011?
Remember, haiku are three-line poems of 5 syllables – 7 syllables – 5 syllables.
What are you playing for? A case of avocados will be sent to the winner from Blue Avocado!
Entries must be submitted by April 15 (same day as Tax Day!). Decisions will be made by a panel of judges. To submit, e-mail your haiku to editor at blueavocado.org or click here (be sure to include your contact info). Our favorite entries (including the winner) will be shared in a future issue!
Note: this contest is now closed to further submissions (it's April 16!): more than 150 entries!
