Hey everyone! Thanks for all of your entries from last week.
It was great reading through all of your answers to those 5 questions.

So let's get started with Mini-Writing Contest #4! This week is all about acrostics.
An acrostic is a poem or a piece of prose where the first letter of each line will spell out a word or a simple message. It can be about anything and everything that's interesting to you, like the name of a flower, a person, or a favourite object. Here's an example:

S wimming in sunshine
U nder umbrellas
M aking meetings
M oonlit meanderings
E vening events
R estful reading

Now try writing your own using some of your favourite words. Pick your best three acrostics to submit for this contest, either one at a time or all three together.

Please keep in mind the following contest rules:
1. You have to live in Toronto to win this contest.
2. You have to provide a valid e-mail address so we can contact you if you win a prize (see privacy statement for more info)
3. Your entry must be submitted by Monday at 11:59pm to be considered to win.
4. Winners will be announced the following Tuesday.

Have fun!
