Is there going to be only one winner from the ages 9-19, or are there going to be winner age groups?

Linda Joy Singleton said...

To answer Annoynmous -- yes, there will be one first place winner from ages 9 to 19. But there will also be other winners (at least 5) who will receive autographed books.

So far not many entries, so the odds for winning something are good.

Enter soon!

Would the honorable mentions be posted here as well as the winner?

Many institutions limit access to their online information. Making this information available will be an asset to all.
