Marshall Allan Hill Competition Winner Announced..
Today has been a sad day. There have been many tears shed in Marshall’s memory. I am delighted however to announce this years winner of the Marshall Allan Hill writing competition.
The Marshall Allan Hill writing competition is held annually with the winner being announced on Marshall’s birthday, today 24th August. The competition is open to everyone, and the only guideline is that the story is suitable for a children’s audience. A short list of entries are forwarded to Marshall’s parents Jason and Cathy Hill, who select the winning entry.
Robert Vescio this years winner with his story ‘Angelica’s Wings.’
Second place is awarded to Caroline Tuohey for her story ‘The Lonely Pine,’
Third place is awarded to Dimity Powell for her story ‘The Boy Who Lost His Laugh.’
Jason and Cathy commented on how much they loved your stories and thank you dearly for entering the competition this year.
Thank you to everyone who submitted a story this year and I hope you consider entering again next year.
Our winning entries along with last years entries will appear in print as a special keepsake gift for anyone that has been touched by the loss of a child. This special book titled ‘Marshall’s Toy Box’ will be illustrated by children as a special reminder of the children in our hearts. All profits will be donated to the Children’s Cemetery for upkeep and towards neonatal genetic research.
We will keep you posted during the progress of this project.
