Two weeks ago we hosted The ReActivator, a short story, for the Four Centuries of Mormon Stories Contest. Now it's time to vote for the contest winner. See below for a message from Everyday Mormon Writer.
We have loved sharing the work of all twelve finalists.
But we’re only going to write one $400 check.
The winner of the “Four Centuries of Mormon Stories” contest will be selected by audience vote. Voters must first read (or hear, in the case of voters who are not yet literate) at least six of the twelve finalists and then rank their top four. These four ranked votes should then be emailed to email@example.com with VOTE in the subject line. (One vote per person please, even if you have multiple email accounts.) Votes with fewer than four pieces ranked will not be counted.
First place votes will be counted as four points, second as three, and so on. The piece with the most points by the end of November 6th will win.
Again, in order to be valid, votes must:
1) Be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by the end of 6 November with VOTE in the subject line.
2) Include four pieces ranked from 1st favorite through 4th favorite. (Be sure to list votes by story title, as some authors have two stories.)
Feel free to include any other feedback you have on the “Four Centuries of Mormon Stories” contest in the body of the email below your ranked vote list.
Please share these voting instructions with friends – they may appreciate the chance to participate in an election with more than two choices and where their vote might actually be decisive!
