Can you believe it has been almost a year since FaithWriters named 2014’s Writing Challenge Best of the Best? Well, we have made it through almost 40 weeks of FaithWriters Writing Challenge topics, and it is almost time to crown 2015’s BoB and two runners up.

Unfamiliar with Best of the Best? Each week, the top scoring entry overall in the FaithWriters writing challenge is eligible to be declared the Best of the Best winner. At the end of all four ten-week quarters, we have 40 potential pieces vying for the Best of the Best crown. And, on July 1 each year, the highest rated of all the first place entries is named Best of the Best and awarded a $300 cash prize. Second and third place receive $100 and $75, respectively.

Now seems to be as good a time as any to share those contenders with you – and I will start with the “Goes Together Like” quarter from summer of last year. Click on the titles to read these amazing entries.
