Sabrina Posted April 21, 2008 Share Posted April 21, 2008 [FONT="Tahoma"][CENTER][SIZE="3"][B]Poetry Contest - Round Two [/B][/SIZE] [hr=Blue]100[/hr] [CENTER][SIZE="4"][B]Aaryanna [/B]vs. [B]Indi[/B][/SIZE] Topic: [B]Why My Opponent Should Win[/B][/CENTER] [hr=Blue]100[/hr] [B]Acrostic Poetry[/B][/CENTER] For this round you are challenged to write an Acrostic Poem. Now for a basic Acrostic poem simply put the letters of the words given down the side of your post and then go back to each letter and think of a word, phrase or sentence that starts with the letter and describes your subject. For example: [CENTER][COLOR="Blue"][B]Topic: Hockey[/B] [B]H[/B]ockey is my favorite sport [B]O[/B]n the ice or street [B]C[/B]ool and fun [B]K[/B]eep on playing [B]E[/B]xercise and stronger [B]Y[/B]ou should try [/COLOR][/CENTER] As you can see, each line starts with a letter in the word hockey in order. No rhyming is required and each line can have from one to fifteen words. Each contestant has till [COLOR="Blue"][U][B]Saturday the 26th[/B][/U] [/COLOR]to get their poems in. At which time the voting will begin, sooner if both members submit their poems before the deadline. Now all members are welcome to vote include those involved. If it is the thread you are in though, only comments and critiquing is allowed since obviously you can’t vote for yourself. But definitely take the time to vote on the other entries! Keep in mind that for this round [COLOR="Blue"]cohesive voting[/COLOR] is required. How does that work? It’s simple; for the next challenge there will be three challenges, in order for your vote to count you have to vote in each one. Any single posting and voting will automatically be disqualified if by the end of the challenge you have not also voted for the other two threads. The only exception is of course the contestants since they can’t vote on their own challenge, however, they too are required to vote on the other two. So even their voting will be cohesive.
