Storytelling Contest Decision Coming Aug. 10

Judges are in the final stretch of deciding which of the several dozen Synapse Storytelling Contest entries will earn our top prizes. 

San Francisco Chronicle science writer Erin Allday said she's impressed by the quality of all the entries.

"I had a lot of fun reading the entries, which were all very informative," said Allday. "You have some great writers in your program."

The final decisions for the top three winners in the science writing, personal essay, creative writing and photography categories will be announced on Aug. 10.

The good news for Synapse readers is they will get a chance to read each winning entry along with all the honorable mentions throughout the 2018-2019 academic year.
