Last month was Asian Pacific American Heritage month, and to celebrate, we held our APA Heritage Month Haiku Contest so you can let us—and the rest of the world—know why being Asian American rocks.

After many hilarious, touching, and amazing haiku entries posted on the comments below, on our Facebook wall and submitted to our @AsiaSociety Twitter, we're proud to announce the winner (plus, honorable mentions!) 

First Prize: Eric Mar
Second Prize: Cindy D
Honorable Mentions: tloh and Jessica

Winners, please e-mail us at printern@asiasoc.org so we can contact you about your prizes.

Thanks to everyone for joining in on the fun. And if you would like to share more haikus about why Asian Americans rock, please keep 'em coming.
