Pages From the Heart Contest Committee Report
LeAnne Bristow and Kimberly Warmke are heading up the new contest committee. We have had several members volunteer to help with the contest, including contacting judges, reviewing scores and comments and communicating contest news. We have talked to Merien about creating a new judges form so that scores are automatically tallied, reducing much of the workload for category coordinators.
We are discussing the best time frame for the contest as there were lots of complaints about the judging needing to be completed within the same month as RWA. We talked about moving the contest to August instead of June. Many people will still be recharged after RWA and excited about getting new work out there so more people might be inclined to enter at that time. It also gives us a little extra time to finish details with new formats, scoring sheets and promotion.
