Hi Sara,

Good luck!  I'm hoping someone will answer your question.

Nope. I keep checking the website, but no announcement. Do you think, as entrants, they'll send us a letter or email saying the decision has been made? (assuming we don't win, of course!  :laugh)

I entered, and had forgotten all about it. Could be because I had a baby yesterday :) good luck!

Congratulations, Michelle! It must be a testament to your amazingness as a mother and dedication as a writer that you're able to check the boards the day after giving birth! :) Girl or boy?

And I can't find the winners, either...

Ok, case of mommy brain. I googled it, too, and assumed 2011 meant stories pubbed in 2011. Sorry for the false alarm!

Thanks, Sara! We had a little girl. I'm not sure what it says about me that I'm on the boards already--but we can call it dedication ;)

Congratulations, Michelle, on your new baby girl!!   :flowers2  I just had a new grandson born on Sunday, so I, too, am impressed with your being here on the boards the day after the big event!

Okay, to keep myself from sending a pestering email to SCBWI about when the results will be announced, I did a little web detective work. :) Last year's results were posted on May 5, and the year before on May 24.

Not that that tells us when they'll post *this* year, but hopefully, it will be soon!

Doesn't it say something about winners in April in the rules? I'm thinking that means the winners may have already been notified.

Thanks, Ev! And congrats to you on the new grandbaby!

It says

Award recipients will be announced the following April.

So I guess they're off schedule, if "announced" means posted. But I'll bet you're right and the winners have been notified already.

I was thrilled to find out that I won the award for Poetry for "Hippity Zippity" published in Highlights High Five. This was the first year I had entered the contest, so just like the bunnies in Hippity Zippity, I was hippity hippity hopping and zippity, zippity, zopping all day! Congratulations to all the winners.

Congrats, Everyone!

Also, a quick question: The entry guidelines asks for x copies of the published work. Does that have to be actual copies of the magazines? Or can it be photocopies of the piece?  Thanks!
