To honor this day The Guardian held an apostrophe haiku contest on Twitter. You can see the entries searching for the #apostropheday hashtag on Twitter. The winning entry and the runners-up have been announced here.

You can report misuses of the apostrophe below or to the Apostrophe Protection Society.

P.S. here is a poster by The Oatmeal explaining the uses of the apostrophe.
