Congratulations to every club that entered the contest! If you are new to this scene or you rejuvenated a hibernating club newsletter due to this contest, you now have a taste of what you can do. This is just the beginning and we hope you will continue with the effort and refine your publication in the months to come. Everyone benefits if you do.
Who knows, there may be another contest next year and you may have the perfect entry for it!
It has been a rewarding experience for me to administer this contest. I would like to thank the panel of judges who took time off their busy schedules to judge the entries and helped me arrive at the final results.
