Koko's Haiku Twitter Contest
In Celebration of Koko's 40th Birthday (July 4th, 2011)a
WINNING ENTRIES
 
Koko1
The winner selection process was truly collaborative – all Haikus submitted were reviewed by Gorilla Foundation staff and consultants and a group of about 20 was passed on to Koko, Ron and Penny (cofounders) for final evaluation.

Koko quickly read through them all (she scans as though she is “speed reading”) and pointed to her favorites which, as you can see, were excellent choices..
