Hello fellow Whyvillians! I am very excited to announce to you the nominees for the first ever Whyville Times Awards. Let me say that this was an extremely difficult task, given all of the amazing articles that have been written throughout the year.

We should all also take a moment to thank Cobd for all of her hard work. This was her idea that she approached me with a few weeks ago and put forth the effort to make it happen. I'd also like to thank everyone on our judging panel who went through all 38 of the editions this year to find the most deserving articles.
