Our first blog contest with a paid writing opportunity for 1st and 2nd place is NOW OPEN. The winner will get two writing assignments which pay $100 per assignment. 2nd place will receive 1 assignment for $100. Third place receives $25. The ministry is the Pocket Testament League and your assignment is to write in 500 words or less a promotional review of their ministry. Full details can be found here (and here on the blog Wednesday).

All the Best of the Best contenders have been determined. Check out the complete list here. And you only have SIX DAYS until the winner is announced.

It’s time to feature the last five contenders (alphabetically, anyway) for Best of the Best. The first place entry overall from each of the 36 Writing Challenge topics between July 2011 and June 2012 are all in contention. Only one, however, will be selected as THE Best of the Best, and awarded $300. Second place will receive $100, and third place $75.

Winners will be announced THIS COMING SUNDAY, July 1 at the Best of the Best page on the site. And on Thursday, July 5, a new Best of the Best year starts, with a new Writing Challenge topic!

But first, check out these last five contenders:
