Thank you so much for entering the contest and spreading the word. Thank you for sharing your hearts. Every entry submitted was amazing! I have thought long and hard about who would win the scholarship and today is the day to announce the winner.
Whether you love children and want to instill a love for reading in them, you teach writing classes, or you are ready to get back to that novel you started long ago, we all love language and words and stories. We all have something to say and we know running (or walking or hiking) will help us find the right words.
Congratulations! Pack your bags, you're coming to North Carolina this August! These ladies were all so passionate, I couldn't stop with just one! For HALF the cost, two MORE winners will also be able to join us. Please share your happy congratulations to this year's winners!
Full tuition scholarship is awarded to...
1. Hillery Rubens of Riverside, California
Half tuition scholarships are awarded to...
2. Tracy Cotton of Hendersonville, North Carolina
3. Jackie Hoermann of Fort Worth, Texas
Congratulations! See you in 3 months!
