Thanks to all who helped us launch The Design Tree! and for making this contest a huge success. With nearly 550 haiku, it was the quality of the poems that really moved us. Our expert panel of Guest Judges had a very tough task when it came to choosing our top three winners. But the seemingly impossible was done. Drum roll please:
Congratulations to our top three winners, for capturing these lovely moments and sentiments and sharing them with us!
Congratulations also go out to the 12 others who made it to the finalists’ group! All will be receiving $200 Greentea Design Gift Cards for their winning poems.
Thanks as well to all the voters who tenaciously pushed their favorite poems into the lead. 10 of these participants were chosen at random and will receive $100 Gift Cards (listed by username):
