Contest Deadline Drawing Near

The deadline for the contest is drawing near and . . . *sigh* I don't have very many entries for the 14-17 age category. The few that I have are great, but if I don't have enough, I can't send that category to the judges, and I SO want to have lots of entries!!! Last year, the 14-17 year age group was the LARGEST group. What happened this year?

So, if any of you have written fan stories for the blog and are in that age group (14-17), you might consider asking me to enter your fan story in the contest.

      Say, is the blog too wide now? I had to widen it to fit in so much stuff from the sidebars. So I created 2 sidebars. Hope it looks okay. I can go back if I need to

  14. I will be 14 in March. 2014 was a good year, but I'm looking forward to this year. Hopefully, in the summer, our family is going to go the US to visit family in Portland, OR. Isn't that quite close to where you live Mrs. M?

    I'm also going to Italy for a week in Feb., I am really excited but also a bit nervous. I am flying in with my Dad, then spending the week with friends by myself, then flying back by myself. It'll be the first time flying on my own, hopefully everything will go ok.

    God bless,
    Hannah M.

    3. I actually don't live in the US, I live in England. But my Mom is American, and all her family is there. They live in Hillsboro, do you know where that is, Anne?

    4. Cool!!!! What church do you go to? My US family goes to Westside Bible Fellowship, and we go there when we're there. Do you know it? Do you have an email address? If you want, we could be pen-pals.
      I don't have an email yet, I just use my Mom's.
      God bless,
      Hannah M.

    5. If any of you want to connect with each other but do not want to leave your email address on this blog, you can contact me in the "send Andi your questions" form and leave emails there and I can send it to the ones that want to be penpals. That way nobody else sees your emails.

    6. And yes, Hannah. Portland, Oregon, is on the Washington border! Been there lots of times and am going to a homeschool convention their in June. 😀

      Delete
    7. Oh! It would be so cool if we were there in June. Then I could meet you!
      Also, thanks for the email solution. After I said that, I thought that might not be the best idea, don't really want email addresses posted publicly, as the wrong people might get it. Thanks!
