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!
