Winners of the Traditional Cinquain Contest - congrats!!!

Blog Posted:4/21/2008 7:40:00 AM

Thank you, so much for entering this contest (my first!) it was so much fun! But MAN, was it HARD. I had no idea how hard the judging would actually be! The entries were so awesome, I mean really really good, that I wish there were more winning slots. As you can see, I put in a few co-winning poems, because I just could not decide!

Congrats to all of you who entered, you deserve applause, you did a wonderful job.

A special congrats to Mr. Brian Strand for the #1 winner, POPPIES!!!

I will post to all entries soon, thanks again!!!

    Congratulations to all the winners! Kristin, thank you for your time and effort in sponsoring this contest. Looking at all the poems, I see how extremely difficult this had to be for you. You did a great job and I am extremely honored to be among the many winners. I will get to everyone soon, but it may take a while as I am having computer problems and my computer is slower than slow when it works. Thank you so much once again, and warmest congrats to Brian Strand! Love, Shar
