I have gotten some questions about this and thought I would clarify this issue.
I am a special education teacher inside the Lebanon Correctional Institution in Lebanon, OH (southwest Ohio). All of our teachers posted your flyer, and many of our students responded with great interest. I believe that you probably got a few entries from our prison. I am grateful to you for sponsoring this. Our student inmates have little to hope for or look forward to, and their inmate status excludes them from many things. Your contest gave them something to hope for, something to participate in, and maybe the idea that someone out there wants them to be included. I look forward to your publication, and to the contest continuing next year. I think you may have tapped into a powerful source of “alternative” voices and points of view.
