Contest Winners: Worlds without Number


The theme for this year’s contest—“Worlds without Number”—took on a whole new meaning as we viewed box after box full of entries. The response eclipsed our expectations. Judging the entries became an almost astronomical task.

We can’t telescope into a few short paragraphs our feelings about everyone who made the effort. Certainly there’s nothing nebulous about our feelings of gratitude. As far as we are concerned, everyone who entered is a star.

Still, as we surveyed this creative galaxy, one constellation of stars seemed to stand out. And so we are proud to present this year’s stellar group of winners.
