And now the Jack Reid Scholarship winners for writing…

I am very pleased to announce our first place and two second place winners for the “writing” portion of the Jack Reid Scholarship. Each applicant was invited to send up to 10 double-spaced pages of a manuscript.  We received 16 manuscript submissions, which were judged anonymously and separately by the three members of the selection committee for clarity of story, writing skills, and appropriateness for genre/age group.

Our first place winner is Cheryl Ware, a West Virginia member of SCBWI, for her manuscript, Child of the Storm.  Cheryl will receive free registration for the “Staying On Track” conference on July 16 & 17, 2011, a $195 value.

We had two manuscripts tied for second place: Pushing Up the Sidewalk, by Sandra Gaffigan of  Columbia, MD, and The White Lilac, by Christina Adams of Havre De Grace, MD.  Both Sandra and Christina will receive a free critique by an editor or agent at the “Staying On Track” conference (a $50 value).

Congratulations to Cheryl, Sandra, and Christina!  We hope this will be the first step toward publication of these promising manuscripts and look forward to seeing you in July.
