    Announcing the 2018 Haiku Contest for Youth

    Deadline to enter is February 9.

    Eugene, OR -- Skipping Stones Magazine, a Lane County multicultural magazine, invites youth of all ages to submit their best nature haiku poetry by February 9, 2018 for display at the 33rd annual Oregon Asian Celebration. The event is planned for February 17 & 18 at the Lane Events Center in Eugene.

    Haiku is a traditional poetry form that comes from Japan. According to Arun Toke, editor of Skipping Stones, “Haiku consists of three lines. The first line and third line both have five syllables and the middle line has seven (but we will not be very strict).”

    “Haiku appeals to the senses (sight, sound, smell, taste, touch) and touch the heart. We encourage entries to also feature nature art to accompany the haiku, “ Toke adds.

    The Haiku entries should be ready for display and mounted on either 11” x 17” or 8.5” x 11” paper and include nature art to illustrate the Haiku. Selected entries will be displayed in the Lane Events Center exhibit hall at the festival. All entries will also be considered for publication in Skipping Stones magazine, an award-winning literary and multicultural magazine for youth.

    Each submission must include on the back the student’s full name, school name, grade level, teacher’s name and email, and school address. Entries must be received by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, February 9, 2018. They can be mailed to the Skipping Stones office, P.O. Box 3939 Eugene OR 97403, or dropped off at the Skipping Stones office at 166 W. 12th Avenue, Eugene (Odd Fellows Building on 12th Ave. & Charnelton St.).

    Entries may also be emailed to the Skipping Stones office. To send entries by e-mail or for more information, contact: editor@skippingstones.org.

    Students with entries published in Skipping Stones Magazine will receive a complimentary copy of the issue.

    A complete schedule of Oregon Asian Celebration activities and performances will be available at the door or at AsianCelebration.org.
