Congratulations to the Winners of the February Contest!

I know you've all been eager to find out who the winners are for this month's contest.  There has been much lively participation among members with intense competition and lots of hard work.  Now it is time to declare the winners!

Congratulations to Yusuf Kose of Newark, Delaware for winning the February contest.  He has earned a grand total of 563 points from submitting book projects and writing stories, a record breaking score for AboutCoolBooks!  Yusuf is our new Super Member of the Month for March and we are excited to find out what new ideas he has for book projects.  Besides earning the privilege to create his own book project prompts, Yusuf has also won a five-dollar gift card to a store of his choice (between Staples, Five Below, and Barnes and Noble).

Additional winners have earned prizes this month.  Congratulations to Hajar Hammami for collecting a very close score of 527 points and becoming a Gold-Medal winner.  Congratulations to Huda Kose for collecting 348 points and also becoming a Gold-Medal winner. Both winners will receive small prizes in the mail.

All members who have participated in the February contest will also earn certificates of participation.  I hope you all have a great time completing new projects in the March contest!  Stay tuned to find out more about it.  (Note: The March contest begins on March 2nd.  Projects submitted before then will not be counted.  Don't forget to re-read the "Find Out More" page to know of any new rules for the March contest.)
