17 Syllables To A $300 Apple Store Gift Card!

ABA Haiku

Lean back, close your eyes, and compose a prize-winning haiku about a recent Supreme Court case or the U.S. Constitution for a chance to win prizes. The ABA competition is open to any full and part-time student at an ABA accredited law school. The deadline for receipt of entries is 11:59 PM Central time on Saturday, November 15, 2015.

A haiku is a non-rhyming Japanese poem.  Haikus consist of three lines and a total of 17 syllables.  The first line has five syllables, the second seven, and the third five.

The first place winner will receive a $300 Apple Store Gift Card and two runners up will each receive a $100 Apple Store Gift Card.

You can check out all the official rules online and submit your entry via the online form.

Here is one of my favorite haiku poems,

I hung the moon on various
branches of the pine
