We thank every entrant for sharing their words and work with us. We received many excellent submissions this year and our readers had some difficult decisions to make. We would also like to extend a special thank-you to our volunteer readers: Donna Besel, Allyson Latta, Parishae Ali, and Becky Blake; and to our coordinator, Nancy O’Rourke, who volunteered her time to coordinate readers and contest administration.
