Our judges were very impressed with the quality of the limericks. We were also impressed with how clever some of our writers were in sneaking in references to Imagine Learning English!
It was a difficult decision, but we're happy to announce that Matthew Christensen is our winner! We're also awarding special prizes to a few third-grade students who entered the contest. Ms. Jones's third-grade class at Dee Elementary School in Ogden, Utah, submitted three fantastic limericks. For their impressive efforts, we will be sending them an Imagine Learning classroom kit filled with posters, stickers, tatoos, window clings, and more.
Here again is Matthew's award-winning entry:
Oh yes, today is the day when Leprechauns come out and play, They might do a trick It could be you they pick To you and your friends they may say:
“Ay, Imagine Learning is fun! We sure do like it a ton! but come follow me we will flee with glee To the end of the rainbow we’ll run!”
All of our friends were there! Like Pete and Amanda the bear We’ll share all the gold Stories will be told Laughter will be heard everywhere!
But Imagine Island we missed, We had words to learn, a whole list! Put our gold in a sack magic sent us back But then we all raised our fists!
Let me describe the scene Those leprechauns, they’re so mean We found rocks in our sack They took all the gold back And I got pinched cause they changed all my green!
Congratulations, Matthew! And thank you, everyone, for the great limericks!
