(Francisco Kjolseth | The Salt Lake Tribune) Utah loves Jell-O, but the company hasn't included any Utah universities in its campaign to create Jell-O molds for schools' mascots and logos.
Don’t forget to submit Jell-O haiku entries by 5 p.m. Wednesday

Coo chi coo Haiku,

Jell-O — please me — make me drool,

It’s pure poetry, isn’t it?

At the very least, it’s good enough to have won last year’s Salt Lake Tribune Jell-O haiku contest, besting more than 800 entries.

Yeah, we acknowledge it’s kind of silly.

But the contest, the results of which we publish each year on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, has become a tradition and readers aren’t going to let it die.

Already, we’ve received hundreds of entries in this year’s seventh-annual contest and we expect more on this, the final day to enter.

The deadline is 5 p.m. for haikus about the staple side dish on many Thanksgiving tables in Utah.

There are categories for adults as well as secondary-school and elementary-school children.

To enter, visit http://extras.sltrib.com/jellohaiku/ and write your haiku in the form provided. Include your first and last name, as well as your telephone number and an email address, so we can contact you if you win. Phone numbers and email addresses won’t be published.

We’ll publish our favorites online and in The Mix section in the print edition on Nov. 27. Cookbooks and other food prizes will be awarded for the best submissions in each category.

Need a reminder about how to write a haiku? Here it is:

Each haiku has three lines. The first line has five syllables. The second line has seven syllables, and the third reverts to five syllables.
