The iTnews tech Haiku competition

Count your syllables, win a bag of swag.

RiAus, Australia's science and tech institution, had a Haiku match.

Winners of 'sci-ku', aged upwards of ten years old, were announced this week.

They took on topics that ranged from atoms to stars, skeletons and sand.

Entrants competed in three age categories: under twelve; teen; free.

iTnews enjoyed primary school submissions. Can you Haiku too?

Our challenge to you: write a technology verse with five, seven, five (syllables).

Please post your haiku in the 'comments' zone below to win some tech swag.

Inspirational entries from the 'sci-ku' match are included here:

Like loud speakers shaking to a beat
Playing the music of life"

An electron is kidnapped
By dreadful Fluorine"
-- By Matthew Cropley, 14 from South Australia, Secondary champ

Aeons of endoskeletons
Abrading to sand"
-- Open group winner, by Hillary Wentworth Jones from South Australia
