Each year, DWAA relies on an independent panel of volunteers to judge the competition entries. Despite the pandemic, we had close to 900 entries, making this year’s competition very close to the number received last year.
Thank you to the judges for volunteering your time, support, and talents to make this year’s competition a success. We appreciate you taking the time out of your busy schedules to volunteer as judges. Without each of you, there would be no writing competition.
This is a great opportunity for writers to showcase their talents and for others to discover what is being created. This develops confidence in both members and non-members to take their journey further while rewarding a job well done.
We are honored and grateful to each of you. Those interested in being a judge for next year’s competition should contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
President’s Note: Special thanks and gratitude to Darlene Bryant for taking on the challenge and task of overseeing and managing the writing competition.
