And the winners are...

Judging the entries to the Intellectuelles contest was anything but easy. There were a great many well-written, thought-provoking posts. Two of my picks made it into the top five (and I didn’t choose Marla’s entry, apparently –- sorry, Marla!)

Thanks again to all the entrants, and congratulations to the winners! I am looking forward to blogging with and getting to know all of these wonderful ladies.

They are:

1) Hannah

2) Lexie

3) Samantha

4) Sarah

5) Marla, of course (she truly earned her way onto the team, though we all know she already had before entering the contest!)

6) Laura, and

7) yours truly

Marla gave “Special Distinctions” recognition to Hannah – the Most Excellent award – for being in the top picks of seven judges, and to Samantha – the Widest Appeal award – for achieving the most People’s Choice votes as well as judges’ votes. Both Hannah and Samantha received the most votes from all sources (the judging panel's picks/alternates and the people's votes)

Samantha's entry tied with Rhea’s as the People’s Choice Winner.

Honorable Mentions went to Sherry and Julie, for having the most votes from all sources except for the winners.

And there you have it!

It's been fun to learn the identities of the entries' authors. All of these authors are worthy of further reading, and if you wish, you may find links to them here.

The Intellectuelles team has a nice mix of similarity and diversity. The blog's possibilities are exciting to imagine! Please pray as it gets off the ground. Right now we are getting some dialogue going and working out logistics.

Intellectuelles will probably launch sometime next week. Apparently our host, Evangelical Outpost, will be changing servers, so once that’s completed, we’ll be off and running! Woohoo!

  • Thanks for all your hard work! Judging isn't easy. I didn't even vote for the people's choice award because it was too difficult for me to choose.

  • I'm glad you didn't pick mine because I wouldn't want anyone to accuse us of cheating :)
