<P>Congrats to all the winners, this was, by far, the hardest contest I have ever judged, as the entries were absolutely brilliant. </P> <P>A special congrats to Mr. John Heck, for his very GREEN poem - it was outstanding, and totally wrapped itself around the reader, amazing. To Sharon, Stacey, Chitra and Anne - all I have to say is AWESOME, you totally captured your shosen colors. :)</P> <P>and to the rest who placed, congrats to you, this was the most fun contest to judge, as it really did brighten up January for me! Thank you for your support, guys, well done! </P> <P>Love, Kristin</P> <P>P.S-for whatever reason, it won't let me post the links here to the poems, so please check out the winners list to see all the winners!
