Each week, Rachelle will choose a finalist from among the week’s entries and post the entry here.

Finalists are posted on Wednesday. Please stop by, check out the winners, and participate in a discussion, sharing your thoughts about the winning entry.

At the end of the contest, readers will vote for their favorites, determining the top three prize winners from the group of finalists. Please see the Rules page for more details.
