And we have our winners!
Thanks to all of you geniuses whom entered. These were really amazing! The judges labored over the entries for eons, disagreeing and reagreeing and finally with secret tie-breaker rules, narrowing the selection down to ten first-place winners and one grand prize.
The Grand Prize was unanimously given to Sarah R, for her poem about the witch which was also the first place prize for that witch trick-or-treater.
The other nine prizes go to Viv Rae, Mitchell (who got two), Nathan, Brad, Sarah (no R), two more for Sarah R, and Abi (Mitchell's sister!).
You can read all of the winners here.
My personal favorite was Sarah R's Otis Owens but I wasn't one of the judges. It just made me LAUGH and every time I read it, it creeps me out.
Thanks again to everyone. One of the Sarahs mentioned that I should do a Christmas contest as well, and I think I'll consider it!
All you winners can you send me your postal addresses via email, so I might mail out the awards next week? Thank you! Happy Halloween.
