Our Summer Contest was a blast! We were able to award the three works Finn Underwater by Hannah Ren, Flight of the Monarchs (art) by Bonnie Chen and The Fight Against Evil by Brendon Wang as our contest division winners, as well as Floppy Goes Camping, Community and Flight of the Monarchs (writing) as honorable mentions. We enjoyed seeing different perspectives, insights, and characters explore the idea of community here in the Pacific Northwest! Each work resonated with our ideas of community, shared experiences, memories, and goals. We are grateful to have had the opportunity to publish them.
Since posting the results, we have delivered ribbons to the winners to congratulate them on their achievement! Take a look:
As the days get shorter, we enter a season of pumpkin spice and falling leaves, as well as our next contest: Campfire Stories: what stories are best shared by the embers of a fire. Stay tuned for more details!
