Winning Is Just The Icing On The Cake

Winning Is Just The Icing On The Cake

 

I get a good feeling for promoting something I believe in – winning is just the icing on the cake! With H being employed as a high school music director this website caught my eye one day. I commented on a post and from there it snowballed!

I received my official notice early this morning! Care to take a peek?

Congratulations winners!

All of you on the BCC list for this email made the finals!  Your submission about education was chosen by the panel as so exceptional, that out of dozens of entries it will be one of the 24 included in the 2nd edition of Lifting The Curtain:  The disgrace we call urban high school education.  (We received nearly 90 “legitimate” entries, in addition to many scam, sales, etc. “submissions.”)  Frankly, I was stunned by the quality of your entries!

I hope you all will follow the blog at:  LiftingTheCurtainOnEducation.wordpress.com to keep up with all that happens!  Just click FOLLOW in the upper right.  Following a blog is anonymous to everyone else – you just receive an email when a new post goes up.

Now some housekeeping:

 

·        Two extra prizes:  We had such trouble deciding the third place prize that we added two more $100 prizes so that two additional teachers could be honored

·        Winners:  The prize winners are listed HERE

·        All 24 entries:  The final 24 topics and winners are listed HERE

·        Gift cards:  The five Amazon gift cards (Three originally promised, plus the two we added) will be emailed to you next week to the email address we have been using during the contest.  PLEASE EMAIL ME QUICKLY IF YOU WANT IT SENT TO  DIFFERENT EMAIL ADDRESS!!

·        Dedicated books and buttons:  These will be mailed to you when the 2nd edition is published – estimated February 2015.

·        Shipping address:  You will need to email a shipping address for the book and button in order to receive the dedicated version.  If you prefer to NOT give a shipping address, please let me know and you can still be gifted a  Kindle version of the 2nd edition via your email address, but will not be mailed the button.

Thank you for participating!!!

“So, how often do you hear of a contest that provides more prizes than promised!!” Oh Wow! I haven’t been “officially” notified yet, but this is such a great honor! It goes to show that everyone is hurt when education goes bad – even a spouse. Hopefully this book will shine a light on the subject! This makes my day! :)

There were so many outstanding entries to our call for submissions that selecting the three best was almost impossible.  Two of them stood out clearly, but a half-dozen others were excellent candidates for the final prize.  In the end, we wussed out! – we added two more $100 prizes that were not part of the original plan so that we could honor two additional teachers.  (So, how often do you hear of a contest that provides more prizes than promised!!)
