It’s August 1st, time to announce the winner of the Candy Heart ARC Contest. The winner will receive both a signed copy of the ARC of Soul Enchilada and a 1:18 scale model of a 1958 Cadillac Biarritz (it’s bigger than it looks in the pic).
In all there were 25 excellent entries. The Teen Judges Three had a difficult task choosing just one heart to receive the prizes. Past members of award committees would admire the very serious way they went about the task of vetting the choices and then going behind closed doors to come to consensus about one heart.
Here are their comments about the winning entry:
“Congrats! I think your candy heart is amusing and creative. It took awhile to decide on the winning candy heart though. I enjoyed many of them.”
“Congratulations!!!!! I loved your candy heart. I thought it was clever and amusing. I really enjoyed reading all of them, even the ones that didn’t win. It took awhile of debating back and forth and rereading to decide on the winner.
–Judge C. #1
“Ohmigosh, I love your candy heart. It was very creative and hilarious. I cracked up the first time I read it. I debated another heart but yours caught my attention. We decided on the Best!!”
–Judge C. #2
The envelope please.
The winning heart is:
