Story Contest Winners!

winnerAs promised, here are the winners of the first-ever Stories in the North Short Story Contest! The judging was blind – the judges had no idea who had written any of the stories, so awards were made on the merits of the stories alone.

Adult Division

First Place: The Lurker by Sue Kerr

Second Place: ‘Tis a Gift by Paula Dunning

Third Place: The Dragonfly by Sue Kerr

We also had a special Honourable Mention because one of our judges felt so strongly about a story that did not make the top three.

Honourable Mention: Summer Ends in November by Sarah McComb

Youth Division

First Place: Strange Happenings at the Busy Beaver Campground by Meghan Barnes


Congratulations to the winners, and BIG thanks to everyone who entered and made this contest possible. If you did not win this time, please don’t be discouraged: we’ll be running this contest again, and looking forward to more entries from all of you!
