2019 World Haiku contest details

Since the establishment of the JAL Foundation in 1990, we at JAL have been proudly sponsoring “The World Children’s Haiku Contest” every two years.  This biennial contest is intended for children all over the world and contest details can be found on the JAL Foundation website at http://www.jal-foundation.or.jp/contest-e.html.

Haiku is a very short form of Japanese poetry, typically characterized by a seasonal reference.  This time the theme is “Sports”, gearing up towards the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020.  It is our wish to receive many haiku entries.

Should you have any questions, please contact Lisa Hamatake at yvr.admin@jal.com.

We look forward to seeing many wonderful works of haiku!

Yours sincerely,
