Oh, what a night!
A fine group of educators, parents and children's book authors gathered at the home of author, Phillip Hoose to judge the artwork entries by Kindergarten thru 3rd Graders to the Hey, Little Ant Essay Challenge. There was much concentration, debate, and laughter as the amazing submissions were reviewed.
Meanwhile across the country, 17 additional judges are reviewing the writing samples submitted online by kids in Grades K-3.
Results will be announced on May 21, 2008!
