The Winning Haiku

The Beowulf: The Legend Contest

Beowulf himself would be the first to tell you that any contest must have a winner, and to the victor go the spoils. This contest was a hard-fought battle worthy of a Geatish hero, and Beowulf would be proud of all of you! Ultimately, though, only one warrior was selected by the masses as having the best understanding of what it is to be a hero. Congratulations, Matt!
