Regarding Honorable Mentions

What are honorable mentions and who are getting them?

Honorable mentions are those entries that didn’t quite make 1, 2, or 3rd place in the contest but came close. They had something wonderful about their writing that is to be commended.

The honorable mentions will be mailed to the students. Every student who participated and who filled out their form clearly and correctly will receive acknowledgement from us within the next few weeks.

If anyone doesn’t hear, that means they forgot to fill out their form clearly. In one case (see a previous post) one girl didn’t fill out ANY form. I checked the envelope and it was a Kaiser envelope so THAT doesn’t help me either! So sadly, she will never hear from us. We have no way to reach her at all. Her entry couldn’t even be considered for the contest because we didn’t know what grade she was in.

Thanks for asking this question. It was a good one. I don’t think we mention it on our guidelines because there may not be room to put everything on one page!

    An honorable mention is an award that isn’t framed but mailed to you or your school. (good to put on your resume ) At this point, we can’t afford to give cash prizes for that, but it is to show you that you have much promise in your piece and you ALMOST made it.

    I hope that helps answer your question. Liz
