Haiku Contest Winners!
03/28/2011
Earlier this month, we invited our readers to send us up to three haiku for a chance to win a Vital Choice Gift Certificate.
 
We received an astonishing number of entries … more than 400 in all, making our judges' jobs very difficult, indeed!
 
Our apologies for the slight delay in announcing the winners … blame on it your fellow readers' incredible response to our pithy-poetry challenge!
 
We want to thank everyone who entered for your excellent, heartfelt creative efforts … you inspire us to keep our standards high!
 
After a very tough evaluation trial, we selected three winners and three runners up ... we'll be sending their prizes out very soon:
