. . . Brittany. Congratulations! Your writing has earned you an official award, writing supplies, and cheesecake.
(Brittany, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your mailing address and your name, as you would like it to appear on your official award certificate, and we'll send everything to you.)
Thanks to my current creative writing class who judged the contest entries. They liked all of the pieces, but in the end, the ACTION in Brittany's story is what secured her first place.
