Can you believe that tomorrow is the first day of June? That means were only a month away from announcing one of FaithWriters’ premiere awards – The FaithWriters Writing Challenge Best of the Best!

Each first place Editors Choice winner of the writing challenge during the challenge year (which runs from July 2012 to June 2013) is eligible. On July 1, 2013, the first, second, and third place entries will be announced – First Place Best of the Best (or BoB) receives $300, second place gets $150, and third place $75.

So, which entries are in contention? That’s what this post is about. Each challenge year is divided into four quarters, with ten topics each. Each Friday for the next four weeks, I will share the BoB contenders from one of the quarters here, so you can check them out. And remember – it’s not too late to be in contention for the 2013 Best of the Best – we still have a few more weeks of the spring quarter to go. And you certainly can’t win if you don’t enter.

And now, without further ado: the Best of the Best contenders from Summer 2012 (click on the title to read the entry):
