Kids Contest Winners Announced!

Judging is complete and here are the winners for the second “Dear Lucky Agent” contest, which focused on kids writing. Congratulations to all winners. We had about 400 entries, which was amazing.

    Thanks, Chuck, for your contests–and thanks also to "Dear Lucky Agent" Jennifer Laughran for giving her time to judge the entries. The three chosen certainly sound compelling (and I love the name Cairo Jones!). For the 397 of us who didn’t make the cut: keep writing. Passion + Persistence + Patience = Positive outcome.
