Even though there was no contest for published books this year, we still had a marvelous unpublished competition. In fact, the Board of Directors would like to take a moment and recognize one of this year’s entrants. At ten years of age, he won our hearts with his contest entry. While he did not become a finalist, we want to recognize his efforts
