    Announcing Winners of the YA/MG Spring Writing Contest in post 11!

    Update: Winners are posted in post #11!


    Warning: this is not a joke! But it is spring and today is April Fool's Day, so I bounce into the forum and announce:

    THE YA/MG SPRING STORY CONTEST!


    What It’s About
    • Entries must include: a practical joke or prank
    • Entries must be titled.
    • Entries must be 600 words or less (not including the title).
    • Entries must be written for teens or tweens! All genres are welcome.
    People vote for their top three favorites. First-place votes get three points; second-place votes get two points; third-place votes get one point.

    The entry with the most points wins.


    The Grand Prize
    • $50.00 gift certificate to a book dealer of winner's choice
    Prize for Second Place
    • $20.00 gift certificate to a book dealer of winner's choice
    Prize for Third Place
    • $10.00 gift certificate to a book dealer of winner's choice
    Rules
    • Entrants must be members of AW in good standing since at least March 31, 2020 (members who joined later than March 31st will not be eligible for this contest). Limit ONE entry per member.
    • Entries will be posted exactly as entered – except that they will all be posted in the same font. Please make sure your spelling and formatting--including spacing--are exactly as you want them before you submit your entry. I will not proofread or edit the entries.
    • All AW members in good standing since at least March 31, 2020, are eligible to vote.
    • Entrants must vote to be eligible to win (but they can vote for themselves).


    How to Enter

    Using the board's private message function, send me your entry by Thursday, April 16, at 11:59 p.m. PDT (Know your time zones).
    I will post the entries on Friday, April 17 and open the voting.

    Do NOT post entries in public. They will be deleted and disqualified (all entries must remain anonymous to ensure fair voting).

    How to Vote

    Once the entries are posted, you may send me your vote – one vote (for your top 3 entries) per current AW member in good standing since at least March 31, also using the private message function.

    In the subject line of your private message, type VOTE: CONTEST

    In the body of the message, include up to three votes in order, from first to third. List both the entry number and the title. For example:

    15. An April Fool
    2. Ha ha ha...oops
    7. All Joking Aside

    Voting will close at 11:59 p.m. PDT on April 30, 2020. Any votes received after that time won't count.

    I will then post complete results with vote totals for every entry, and announce the winners on May 1.

    Okay, I'm off to clear out my inbox

    HAVE FUN AND GOOD LUCK!

    (Thanks to Smish for the kidlit contest format, which I absolutely stole)
