Send us your submissions for our first annual Holiday Haiku Contest

Southside Daily and 102.1FM-The Tide’s Holiday Haiku Contest

It’s time to get out your pen and paper and put your noggin to work. We’re hosting our first annual holiday haiku contest, and we want to hear from you. Send us your poems on news in Hampton Roads, our way of life here or what the holidays in Tidewater mean to you.

Southside Daily and Tide Radio staff members will vote on their favorite entries to determine the winner. Will there be prizes? Of course!

Here they are:

  • $50 gift card to Salon Vivace Virginia Beach
  • 4 (one-time 18-hole round) tickets to Elizabeth Manor Golf & Country Club
  • $50 gift card to Rockafeller’s
  • 4 tickets to the Old Dominion University men’s basketball game vs. Charlotte on Jan. 2 at the Ted Constant Center
  • $100 gift card to Taylor’s Do it Center

A haiku is 17 syllables long over three lines in a 5-7-5 format. We’ll print the best poems on Christmas Eve, so get them in by the deadline: noon Friday, Dec. 18.
