We are sad to say that this is the last month for this contest that we have been runningfor years.

A special thanks goes to Gail Kay for being the Contest Director for so many years and for running such a reputable contest on the Internet. We all appreciate your efforts.

We would also like to thank all of the judges who looked through tens of thousands of poems over the years (3 reviews for each poem). You are all Saints and we mean that.

Nishu is eligible for a $25 paypal payment if a paypal email address is provided.

All poems were read by three independent judges. Each judge could reward a star to a poem that was read if they thought it was 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 then choose the top poems.

Thanks again to everyone. Great Job!

The VoicesNet Team.

Gail KayCongratulations to our three top winners. So many wonderful poems are entered and I wish all in the short lists over the years could have known just how close their poems came to winning. It has been a great pleasure and privelege to have been the contest director. Voicesnet continues to grow and evolve and the future is sure to hold something wonderful. God bless you all!Australia9/21/2012 9:32:40 PM

Elizabeth SquiresCongratulations to Nishu, Kenneth and Mark for doing so well in the August 2012 Poetry Contest. Australia9/19/2012 10:34:07 PM
Dwayne RankinI have to say that the judging has been fabulous Especially with the last 2 months. I could never have chosen between the top three in either month.. I have to thank you for having this contest and though I am sorry to see it go, I do understand. Thanks for the memories and I plan to go back time and time again to read the winners from the past contests. Gail has done an outstanding job and even though I do not know who the judges were I have to take my hat off to them for the wonderful job they have done. USA9/19/2012 8:40:54 PM
