Announcing our Teen Haiku Contest Winners!

This year over 36 haikus were entered by 13 teens in our annual Haiku Contest.  Without further ado, here are the winning entries! 

Our winner was Rowan Humphries, a senior at Aquinas Institute.  Rowan wrote about friendship:

My Faraway friend
time's swept us apart again
when will you be back?

Second place was awarded to Paul Suflita of Greece, who wrote on the topic of social justice:

The rich overlook
The multitudes of needy
Two sides of one coin

Third place winner Alissa Frame from Pittsford wrote about spring:

Deer in the forest
Graceful steps, nose in the air
Desire for loved spring

We had two honorable mention awards this year - sisters Christina and Crystal Lee of Greece. 

Christina wrote "Lions":

Large ferocious beasts
The fierce King of the Jungle
blaring mighty roars

Crystal (who was our first place winner in 2014) wrote "Wild River":

Fast rapid currents
Dancing over the rocks
Spraying in your face.

First place winner Rowan Humphries

Third place winner:  Alissa Frame

Honorable mention winners:  Crystal and Christina Lee
