So many entries for our annual Short Story Contest have come in the past few days we've not been able to keep up with acknowledging them all. We expect to be caught up again before the submission deadline, though. In spite of all the activity, very few Elementary School entries have been submitted so far, so it may be an easier than normal year to win in that category.

When e-mailing stories for our annual Halloween Ghost Story Contest, please include a subject like "Halloween Story" or "Ghost Story" or "Story Contest". Messages with no subjects are far more likely to end up filed as spam and not get noticed right away.
