You all should know, you made it VERY difficult to pick winners in this Coleman Essay Contest.
The entries were all excellent and when you have a whole bunch of excellence, it’s really hard to narrow them down into a 1st, 2nd, 3rd and so on scenario!
But the numerous judges put their votes in, then narrowed down that list, then voted again, then narrowed down again until it was decided.
Without further suspense, here’s the final verdict.
