Highest Ranked Entries for AFRICA

Postby Deb Porter » Thu Mar 19, 2009 7:51 pm

Hi Challengeers.

Now that our Africa winners have had a little bit of time in the spotlight, it's time to give a cheer to all those who didn't quite make it to the top, but did very well.

As entries were relatively low again for this topic, I'll only be posting the Top 30 overall, and no highest rankings (other than the five winners) for Level 2. There'll be a Top 40 again for next week's winners.

So if your entry appears on any of these lists, you did very well. Give yourself a pat on the back.

Love, Deb

Do you know how shocked I was to see that this one landed in the top ten for Masters? I thought it was a workable idea, but when I finished the entry, I didn't think 750 words was really enough to develop it properly.

This has been a "stretching" quarter, and hats-off to all who have risen to the challenge, regardless of whether the entries placed or not. I've enjoyed these journeys with you, and look forward to what the next quarter has in store for us.

It is SO very good we have this list. I was just wondering how I did and to read this is encouraging. Thanks! Everyone did a great job.

Hey Vicki! Glad you came on over to see for yourself. I was running very late posting the notices on the Level 1 entries this week. (Computer problems.)

If you pop over to this forum every Thursday afternoon (or evening) you'll get to see all the highest rankings.

Love, Deb
