Announcing Our 2017 Limerick Contest Winners

Every year, Imagine Learning holds a limerick contest for budding new poets--and every year, the contest is harder to judge! Our 2017 Limerick Contest was no exception; we read so many wonderful and creative limericks that it was hard to choose a winner. In the end, our judges voted for entries that best captured the distinctive rhyme and rhythm of a limerick, along with those that were especially creative in following this year's theme: "My Favorite Subject." Congratulations, students--your limericks were amazing. The Winning Limericks Top prizes this year went to students of Carolyn S--by far the most entries received. Great job, students!
