The NMS Library is proud, & delighted to announce the winners of our Women’s History Contest:
This was a very difficult contest to call this year, as the level of entries was very high indeed. A unifying factor in all the entries received was ZEAL. Not only did the entrants mention all the wonderful qualities that make girls & women great, but they did not select just one example ~ they cited a number of great girls & women from history.
As our winner stated,” Women are great . . . WHY question it ? We are wonderful, strong, powerful, talented, worthy, intelligent, and loving.” So, our first prize,( of a Barnes & Noble gift card,) goes to Alex Friedland.
Our near winner, (very near,) stated an essential fact, “ A world without women wouldn’t be a world at all. ” Our very near-winner’s name: Talia Reiss. [* Alex was not yet available for a photo . . .Ms. Q ]
We thank all who entered, and look forward to your entries in our Library’s next contest, penning a Haiku, (a three-line poem,) in honor of Poetry ( & btw, Library) Month
