Circle C Milestones 100-word contest winners

My publisher, Kregel (who hosted the CCMilestones mini-writing contest), announced the winners today, August 31, 2015. Go to the Circle C Milestones Mini-writing Contest and scroll down the page to see the winners of Gold, Silver, and Bronze, and read their entries.

There were over 90 entries in this contest!Thanks for entering.

Two prize ideas for future writing-prompt contests
Now that I know how to do this prompt-writing contest thing, I may put on more of these contests throughout the year. I have many fun prizes here at the house, just waiting for fans to win.Like this engraving art for older kids and the sun catcher for younger. And books and journals and other fun stuff I see when I'm at Hobby Lobby. I think the next time I will have two age categories though. I think it was very hard for the younger kids to compete with the older writers.

Would you like to see more contests of this kind?

    7. I don't know... maybe.. there could be different categories? Or something like that...

      Or, maybe they can just take a really cool pic of a western item (like boots, a horseshoe picture frame, a barn, etc.)?

      I don't really know, but those are just ideas. Mrs M would probably be better at figuring it out. :-)

    1. Yes.
      The 2016 CCA story-writing contest is completely different from these little "mini" contests. And judged by independent judges. I do hope you will enter it! :-)

    1. Sure, and they are very reasonable. I saw them selling their products at the homeschool convention and got their website for future reference. Here it is:

  10. So, Mrs. Marlow, I was fifteen during the 2013 writing contest you hosted and won second place. I didn't enter last year. But this year I'm seventeen, does this mean that I still can't enter the contest because I won't be moving up an age group?

    1. If you are 17 and this is your last year of qualifying, then yes, you may enter this one last time. :-)
