When will you announce the Virginia Frank writing contest winners for 2018?
Thanks for asking! At this point, the review and selection of the Virginia Frank contest winners are in the hands of the Friends of the Library volunteers, and we haven't received an update or announcement of their decisions.
If this year follows the same timetable as previous years, winners will be notified by letter in early April, so keep an eye on your mailbox. Unfortunately, notifications are not sent to non-winning contestants, so there's a period of uncertainty for most writers. If a letter does not arrive, your child should be proud of their contribution but may not have been selected as a winner.
The winning entries will be announced at a reception which is typically held the last week in April.
Sorry this is a bit of a non-answer answer, but given the distributed and volunteer-based organization of the Friends and the writing contest, there's really not a consistent point I can steer you toward for information. Watch your mailbox and check the website https://omahalibrary.org/virginia-frank-memorial-writing-contest/ periodically. At the very least it will be updated after the reception when the winning entries are made public.
