Your Best Poem that is Trophy Worthy Contest 2 Finalized

Blog Posted:10/3/2019 11:44:00 AM

Thank you for your contest entries.  There has been some scrutiny as to how I can judge and feel someone's poem is" trophy" worthy.  To clarify, the poems submitted are all wonderful and trophy worthy.  The poems are judged on several factors, following directions, form, grammar, spelling and what appeals to me.  It is challenging to judge one poem as the "trophy" winner out of 35 awesome poems.  My judging is subjective and just because your poem may not be chosen as the winner doesn't mean that it is not trophy worthy.  I plan to have several of these contests moving forward unless they continue to cause more scrutiny and angst.  To also clarify a poem can be submitted that has never been submitted in a previous contest as well as one that placed first in a standard contest.  

Congratulations to the winner!

Good for you Tania it must be the hardest contest to judge, I gave it a go but I think i will bow out graciously now. So delighted for Andrea, I am amazed her cinder girl poem hasn't had a trophy before now:-) hugs Jan xx

Well done, Tania, one of the hardest things to do is to judge and only pick 1 or 10 when all the entries are great. It took strength and courage. Congratulations, Andrea, very well-deserved win. Hugs Eve

Ha! Awesome choice, and a poem that SHOULD have a trophy next to it, I think everyone here would agree. Wonderful selection, Tania, and congratulations to my Buddy, Andrea - a poet and friend dear to my heart. Blessings! :o) <3
