The premise was simple: Answer a question via Twitter in 140 characters or less for the chance to win a $37,000 scholarship to the University of Iowa’s Tippie College of Business.
The question: “What makes you an exceptional Tippie full-time MBA candidate and future MBA hire? Creativity encouraged.”
The winning answer came in the form of a haiku:
“Globally minded (5)
Innovative and driven (7)
Tippie can sharpen (5)”
John Yates, a 33-year-old Texas-based culture and language trainer for Berlitz, won the prize, according to Business Insider.
I’d like to offer my response to this story in the form of a haiku:
Haiku can net you
Thirty-seven thousand bucks
May God help us all
