Thank you to everyone who entered our Brilliant Beginnings First Line Contest, and to our five hardworking judges, who had some tough choices to make. It was a very close contest. Each judge individually ranked the entries according to his or her preference, and then the points were tallied to declare the winners, which are:
First Place ($30): "Her long journey through pain was almost over." (Robert Norwicke)
Second Place (Starbucks gift card): "So much for life and liberty." (Jessie Gunderson)
Third Place (Starbucks gift card): "I knew this man would change my life; I could see my future in his eyes." (Jane Bettany)
Congratulations, winners! You will each be contacted individually to arrange for receiving your prize.
Great job, everybody! We've got another fun contest in the works, so keep reading Writing North Idaho for the details.
