Question about California Writers Club Young Writers Contest

One student mailed her entries today and is concerned whether or not she’s made the April 1st deadline.  When will she hear the outcome? 

Your stories will get there on time.  They will be stamped today which is the important thing.  We check the mail box through the week so even if the mail carrier messes up the STAMPED date is the important thing.  Next week the manuscripts are put into categories of grades and whether or not they are poems, short stories and personal narratives.  Then I take them to the various judges and they get read.  Next, the judges talk with each other. So this whole process takes weeks.  As soon as the judges get back to me with their decisions, the winners get phone calls and I post the winners names on this blog.  Hopefully all of this will be done by May 1. 

Although winners get phone calls, everyone else will be notified later with a letter as mailing information in clearly printed on the form and is correct. 

Thank you for your very good questions!  Liz

    Hi! Thank you for making such a wonderful contest! Me and my friends had a fun time participating. How is the grading going so far?

    Writers aren’t “placed” beyond the first three. However, every writer DOES hear from us. And just because one person may not win this contest, it doesn’t mean that the person isn’t a good writer. There are TONS of good writers that have entered but everyone can’t win. Keep on writing and entering contests. Each year we see how the writers improve as they write more and grow!
    And remember, the judges are still at work.
    Happy reading and writing!
