Last week we hosted a St. Patrick’s Day limerick contest. To help everyone get into the spirit—and to learn more about how to write a limerick—we shared one of our favorite songs. And we received many responses, thank you! There were so many good entries this year, our judges needed a little Luck of the Irish just to pick a winner!


Without further ado, here are the 2013 winners:

3rd Place: Alex M., 5th Grader

Prize: a talking Mike the Microphone plush toy

I like to play basketball
I play people very tall
It is my favorite sport
I dribble down the court
So come play basketball, dont go home and play dolls

2nd Place: Alyssa R., 5th Grader

Prize: a Booster bobblehead

March’s color is green
I guess I’ll tell you what I mean
Lepracons come
THey might leave you gum
Thet might even give you a green ring

1st Place: Lorena Sanchez

Prize: $25 Amazon gift card

There once was a teacher in Tracy
Whose students thought she’d gone quite crazy
When out of the blue
She would throw her left shoe
At kids who looked sort of too spacey
