All poems were read by three independent judges. Each judge awarded one star to each poem that he or she considered a top poem. All poems that received one or more stars from the judges were then classified as finalists. The finalists were then read and reviewed again in a final round of judging to choose the top poems.

A special thanks to Gail Kay, our Contest Director, for her huge and unselfish efforts as usual.

Thanks to everybody for participating in this leading Internet poetry contest.
