BrooWaha Writing Contest: And the Winner is ...

by Ariel (editor), Venice, CA, October 14, 2007


Dear BrooWaha readers and writers,

It is my pleasure to announce that the winner of the 1st BrooWaha Writing Contest is: Tina Dupuy!

Her article Stand Up, Sit Down, Do Your Civic Duty received the best ratings from the members of our jury, who were:

· David Cohn , Editor at NewAssignment.Net, Joshua Marks , Features Editor,, David Domingo , Assistant Professor at University of Iowa, Glenn Koenig , Staff Photographer at the Los Angeles Times, and Al Miller , Professor, Communications at Moorpark College

Here are a few quotes by a few of our jurors summarizing thoughts on her article:

"Brilliant article based on personal experience of being (non-)member of a jury. An anecdote turned into a thoughtful reflection."- David Domingo, Assistant Professor at the University of Iowa

"This was delightful clever and true. A good read!"- Glenn Koenig, Staff Photographer at the Los Angeles Times

" Easy to relate to the writer. [S]he takes you into a situation that most people try to avoid -- but because [s]he makes fun of it -- you know [s]he isn't crazy h[er]self..."- David Cohn, Editor at NewAssignment.Net

Congratulations again to Tina, she will shortly receive a $75 gift certificate to and a custom BrooWaha t-shirt!

Congratulations also to Venditto with second place for "Ten Ways To Make Your Summer Last" and to Glenn T and M.J. Hamada for tying for third place. Please look out for new articles by these talented writers!

This contest was a great success and will lead the way to other contests in the very near future.
