Something has gone awry with my attempt to post the results of this contest.  Perhaps I shouldn't have written the titles on that paper airplane....OOPS....

John, like Hilo said, re-open the contest, and try again, it has happened to me before and I was able to fix by reopening and going through the steps again, best of luck....I have read some of the wonderful poems written for your contest, it would be sad to not see them on a winning list, blessings ~

Hi John, have you gone to your contest page, at the bottom where it says to "Finalize Contest" click no (since you have closed it), then go through your steps, 1, 2, and 3, verifying and updating, then when you've completed this task, go back to your contest page, "Finalize Contest" and then click on yes, and voila--it should work then, lest there's a window of opportunity? Aloha William
