Tofu, so tasty

Mashed soy beans is how it’s made

Makes meat obsolete

Children ages 7 to 17 are invited to pay homage to tofu in Kapolei Library’s “Tofu Haiku Contest.”


A haiku (Japanese poem) consists of three lines made up of five, seven and five syllables, respectively. Entrants are urged to be as creative, poetic or silly as they like.

One family package to Wet ‘n’ Wild Hawaii water park will be awarded to the grand-prize winner in each age category - ages 7-12 and ages 13-17. Runners-up for both age groups also receive complimentary prizes from the sponsor, Aloha Tofu, which is celebrating 60 years in Hawaii.

Contest winners will be announced Feb. 27 during the library’s Tofu Haiku program, which will feature a performance by award-winning storyteller Nyla FujiiBabb.

Entries should include student’s name, age, address, phone number and name of school, and must be delivered or postmarked to the library by 5 p.m. Jan. 30.

All haikus will be displayed in the library with only the contestants’ first name and age listed.

For more information, call 693-7050.
