The Nicholas A. Virgilio Memorial Contest

Founded in 1990, the Nicholas A. Virgilio Memorial Haiku and Senryu Contest for grades 7-12 is co-sponsored by the Nick Virgilio Haiku Association and the Haiku Society of America. It was an honour to be asked to co-judge the contest this year with Michael Dylan Welch. The results can be found on the Nicholas A. Virgilio website, The Haiku Society of America website and its journal, Frogpond. A hearty congratulations to the six winners! It was truly a privilege to read your work.
