CEU International Media Relations Manager Colleen Sharkey won the 2017 National Grammar Day haiku contest, sponsored by podcaster Grammar Girl and the American Copy Editors Society (ACES). Her haiku is a play on words that relate to both grammar and pregnancy:
With a pregnant pause
I calculate periods
Here come contractions
She was inspired by a friend in her native Ohio to enter the contest, competing against 500 other entrants. For taking the top prize, Sharkey receives a one-year membership to ACES and several grammar-related books.
