Blogger Contest Finalists Announced


After two straight days of reading so much that I thought my eyes were going to cross, we cut the 296 KSR Blogger Contest entries down to 25 finalists. This year’s group was amazing in terms of depth of talent and we all agreed that there were probably 75 people who could have made the final cut. A few entries stood out above all (we each had a favorite of the ones we judged…mine was Horn, Tomlin’s was Stone, Beisner’s was Thomas, Drew’s was Cartier and Will’s was Totten), but we all agreed that this was a very solid group. These 25 reach the next round, where they will get a topic to ruminate on for the masses. Here is your group:

Adam Horn — 19 year old Harvard student from Versailles, Kentucky (writer or Harvard Crimson)

Corey Nichols — Sixth grade teacher in Frankfort, Kentucky
