We originally started the voting as a way to involve the students and
teachers in the process of selecting the final winners.
Unfortunately, very few students and teachers signed up to help with the voting.
We felt with so few votes being placed that the final top ten winners were not a true
representation of the best entries from the contest. The decision was made to discontinue
the voting process, and have our panel of judges make the final top ten decisions for each grade division.
We're sorry this program is no longer offered, and we appreciate your help in the past
in deciding the final top ten. Good luck to you with your future writing endeavors.
