'Twas the Night Before Christmas Contest


Governing.com is hosting a contest for the holidays. See their blog post in full here. The challenge? Write your own verses for the Christmas classic 'Twas the Night Before Christmas based on a government theme. The deadline is Thursday, December 17th, 12 pm Eastern time. Therefore, Hawaii entrants should probably get their entries in by Wednesday evening. Email entries to hkerrigan@governing.com.

The prize? A Governing goodie bag filled with books, notebooks and other surprises! Yay! They will also post some of their favorites on the Governing.com website.

Here's a few sample verses provided by Governing.com from the B&G Report (a mainland organization), this one city-oriented:

T'was the night before budget
And all through the town
The whole counsel was ranting,
"Our mayor's a clown!"

"He wants to raise the taxes,
on screws, nuts and bolts
But the big building lobby
Has a ton of votes."
