Writing contest winners announced

     Victor Valley College's writing contest winners have been notified, and those winning first, second or third place will be receiving monetary awards. The booklets composed of the winning entries are on sale in the Rams Bookstore for 50 cents.
     Tim Adell, an English instructor, said there weren't as many entries this year. Usually, 60 to 80 poems are submitted, but this year only 28 poems were entered in the contest. However, the other categories had about the same number of entries as last year, he said. Also, having the writing contest end at an earlier date (Jan. 31) than other years enabled the booklets to be completed before graduation, Adell said.
     Adell said the judges were himself, Claudia Basha, Carol Golliher and Patty

Golder. He said the entries were judged on originality and independent thought.
