Well, ladies and gentlemen, I won 1st place in the Rational Skepticism Science Writing Contest! I am very happy and excited, and can’t wait for the next round of essays. I am quite shocked that I won, because I noted a few typos I had made. Whenever I would look at my essay, the typos stood out like a sore thumb to me! Nobody, or at least not enough people, noticed to make a difference. I also have a feeling that being the first to submit an essay contributed a little.
Thanks to all who took time to read all the essays and took part in the competition. It was truly fun.
