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.
