1. There is a certain mazal involved in winning a contest. This contest had very specific criteria and the prize was for the essay that came closest to meeting that criteria. It wasn’t really so much about the quality of the writing or the value of the essay. Your essay may very well be valuable even if it didnt’ get a mention. 2. The point was to write an essay.

the point of the contest was for everyone to learn Chassidus and chassidus be spread out.
I suggest all winning contests and specially mentioned ones be proudly displayed on Rabbi Jacobson’s web site for all too see and learn from.

wasn't that the point so y not?

I hear your point
The judges are human and there might have been a few errors in the process but I assure you they had no personal need in or gain from picking the winners that they chose
This competition was conducted in good spirit and with healthy intentions
Although the results may fail to acknowledge certain amazing pieces or even just remarkable efforts, the winners most definitely deserve the credit that they got ….
Just smile and enjoy it
And to all who entered – keep writing!

March 22, 2015 9:16 pm

Not everyone has the time to search trough the video…

who and how
March 22, 2015 9:05 pm

Was it decided from the submission through the first step of elimination? Was that totally anonymous? and in the spirit of transparency who where the final judges? All in all it made some positive excitement?

Maybe
March 22, 2015 9:04 pm

Next time you should have more than just a single person to vet the entrants.
That said, well done to the winners!
