The Teche Project is asking young poets to get creative and write a haiku about the Bayou Teche.

The Bayou-Ku Children's Poetry Contest is open to children ages 5 to 12 and is in recognition of April's National Poetry Month.

Poets are asked to write a haiku about any plant or animal found along the Bayou Teche.

Submissions will be accepted until April 30, 2021.

The Teche Project says that selected poems will be published. First-place winners in age level categories will receive prizes including a Geaux Paddle t-shirt and kayak outfitting services for two with Bayou Teche Experience.
