As we ventured in to the new year, I established one of my 2011 blogging goals to continue my active participation in this great community.
Continuing with this goal, several weeks ago, I signed up along with several other Yakezie members to form the Yakezie Writing Contest Committee (see list below) for the 2nd Yakezie Writing Contest. The goal of the writing contest is to empower our youth to practice their writing, learn how to market themselves, and compete effectively for a chance to win money to help further their education.
Important Note: The picture associated with this post is the actual winner from the last Yakezie writing contest! See – us bloggers do help the real world too! 🙂
During the past ten days, the Committee was successfully able to review and narrow down the original 1,049 essays entered in the contest to only 60 finalist essays. The 60 finalist essays will be posted two per day on the Yakezie.com site so that readers can vote for them.
