Data Haiku Contest

Write a haiku about data! Your haiku must be related to data in some way (e.g., data management, processing, sharing, preservation, reuse, etc.).

The contest is open to current Notre Dame students and employees. 1 submission per person. Submissions are due by noon on February 12.

What is a haiku?
Haikus have a rigid structure of 17 syllables divided across 3 lines. The first line should have 5 syllables, the second line should have 7 syllables, and the third line should have 5 syllables. Haikus do not need to rhyme.
