Banned Books Week  -- Return of the Haiku Contest

Time is approaching for the Library's annual Banned Books Week Student Haiku Contest.  For the third year, the Library is sponsoring a Huntingdon student haiku contest for National Banned Books Week (September 21-September 27).  The contest is open to all Huntingdon students and here is what you need to do to enter:

Write an original haiku that relates to a particular banned or challenged book or author, or that speaks to the issue of censorship in some fashion.  

Submit your haiku by September 28 to

Submissions will be judged by a panel of faculty.  Winning haiku will be published on the Library's web site, social media platforms, and in an upcoming issue of The Prelude, Huntingdon's literary magazine.  Winning poets will also receive prizes.
To learn more about National Banned Books Week, including lists of banned and challenged titles and authors, go to (Tip: If writing a haiku on a specific book or author, try branching out and selecting a topic outside the mainstream.)

To learn about haiku, take a look at these two sites: (Academy of American Poets) (Haiku Society of America)
