I’d like to extend my sincere thanks to all of the participants in our annual Whispering Prairie Press Writers Contest. We had excellent submissions this year, from all over the country. It made for some hard decisions for our judges, but they really enjoyed seeing the fine work that filtered through to us this year.
Congratulations to our winners.
