Fourth Annual Occupation Haiku Contest

To celebrate National Occupational Therapy Month and National Poetry Month, the School of Occupational Therapy and the Department of Humanities are hosting the fourth annual Occupation Haiku Contest. Entries are encouraged from all members of the Brenau community.

Use the traditional 5-7-5 syllable verse form of the haiku to capture a moment of human occupation and/or daily life and suggest its significance.

The first prize entrant receives $50, second prize is $30 and third prize receives $20. Each entrant may win only one prize. Only students may win cash prizes; faculty/staff winners will receive honorable mention. Dr. Betty Hasselkus, internationally known occupational therapy and science scholar, will judge the entries along with Drs. Sandy Brim and Kathryn Locey.

Submit your haiku in the body of a single email (no attachments, please). Send up to three haiku to ceggerding@brenau.edu with the subject line “Occupation Haiku Contest.”

The deadline to enter is Thursday, April 12. All entries must be received by 11:59 p.m.

A celebration and reading will be held Tuesday, April 24, 5:30 p.m. in the Library Quiet Zone.
