Inspired by Song! July Contest - WINNERS ANNOUNCEMENT!
It's that time again already? Yes, it's time to announce the winners of the July Inspired by Song! contest. This month's theme was "Sounds of Summer".
I would like to thank all of the participants for entering. As with all of our contests, each entry will receive 200 bonus points, in addition to the regular 200 points for posting.
SO, who are this month's big winners, anyway?
Well, just take a look below......
LEESA FINLEY - GRAND PRIZE - 1000 BONUS POINTS
Leesa's post was engaging and compelling, while retaining a sense of fun and adventure. All in all, it was very entertaining stuff. Don't miss this one.
ELAINE MANES - 500 BONUS POINTS
Elaine takes us on a journey to the summer of 1976 in this well-written post. WARNING: Includes "Afternoon Delight" . Not for the faint of heart. Great job, Elaine!
BOB MITCHELL - 500 BONUS POINTS
Bob painted a vivid mental picture of the summer of 1979, just after his own high school graduation. I am a little younger, but I also remember the "click click" referenced in his title. Well done!
HAROLD WATTS - 500 BONUS POINTS
Harold's entry cuts across several different summers, and includes some classic summertime tunes. I have to applaud him for his choice from 1975, when a very well-known movie theme hit the airwaves.
KARA CASAMASSINA - 500 BONUS POINTS
Kara is a fresh face in our contest this month, and I am glad that she entered. Some of the songs she chose were favorites of mine as a kid, too.
MARILYN KATZ - 500 BONUS POINTS
Another fresh face! Marilyn's post evokes some very specific images, and although she was reluctant to reveal the year, the songs and artists are well-known classics.
Again, I would like to sincerely thank all of the contestants. We had some great NEW participation this month,with a total of just over 20 entries. I will be forwarding a list to the AR guys for point distribution in the next day or so.
