Thank you to everyone who participated in the first ever Junia Project blog contest! Our panel of four was honored to read your entries and we are so thankful for all who took the time to write! Choosing category winners was very difficult because there were so many incredible submissions. In fact, every entry we received had great value that was worth sharing, making it hard to pick only 3 to feature on the blog …so we selected 5 winners and 10 runners-up!
Each winner will received a copy of Lynne Hybel’s book, “Nice Girls Don’t Change the World”, and their entries will appear on The Junia Project blog this fall. We will notify authors by email and let them know when their post will appear. We would also like to feature the entries written by the runners-up. We have emailed the authors for their permission, so be looking for those in the coming months as we add the links to their posts here.
AND THE WINNERS ARE…
