Re: Winners for REST

I'm utterly speechless. I wasn't expecting to even place, much less be chosen for EC. Wow. Thanks to everyone who judges our entries each week. You put in a lot of hard work, just so we can experience the fun of the Challenge. Congrats to all you writers! There were some awesome stories this week.

I love it, Jan! This is the very thing I needed to see. Thank you so much!
