Defining Twilight Essay Contest Winners!


Here are the winners of the Defining Twilight Essay Contest!


We first announced the contest in May before DefiningTwilight was even in stores. The contest ran for three months and received more than 750 entries in three age categories! Selecting the winners from so many terrific essays was incredibly difficult.


Essays were judged on correct and effective use of the eight vocabulary words; creativity; clear communication of ideas; and correct syntax, grammar, spelling, and punctuation. After reading and rereading, we have selected the following winners.


Congrats!

1st Place ($500 and a copy of Defining Twilight): Sabrina Alvarez

2nd Place ($50 and a copy of Defining Twilight): Catie Asip, Brittany Tayler Huber, Rachel Shafran, Sabrina Alvarez

Ages 16-18

  1. There is at least one male winner, possibly two if McKelvey is male (as I assume).
