Winner of the Bedtime Stories Contest

Back in October, we announced the Bedtime Stories contest that the folks over at Nature Made Sleep® were holding. The contest was open to anyone unafraid to let loose their imaginations and offered the perfect opportunity to show some creativity and share it with others.

Over the course of three months, 382 aspiring authors submitted their sleep-inducing stories and gave the judges some tough decisions to make. It was inspiring to see so many people take a chance on putting their ideas out there. And I bet many authors were surprised to learn how talented they are.

After tallying 5,162 votes, and reading each story cover-to-cover, the judges narrowed the results down to one grand prize winner: Tracey-Jane Smith for her story, Addie and Ollie, which teaches the importance of friendship even when someone is different from you.

As the grand prize winner, Tracey-Jane Smith will receive:

  • A $7500 cash prize
  • A publishing prize pack, sponsored by Lulu.com, where her story will be professionally illustrated
  • 10 printed copies of her book
  • 1-year supply of Nature Made Sleep

Please help me in congratulating Smith and all of the participants of the Bedtime Stories contest in the comments below. You can check out Smith’s story and the two runners-up on the Nature Made blog. Also be sure to keep checking the Lulu blog and our Facebook and Twitter pages for more contests to spark your creativity in the future.
