First Place: “Lies of a (supposed) Good Girl by Jennifer + the Machine
Second Place: “Freshman 15 by Selena
Third Place: “College for a Spy by Gabriell Struble

Of the stories, Blake said:

“Loved these college stories!  Jennifer + the Machine, you cracked me up!  And my favorite line was from Gabriell Struble’s awesome spy story: “‘So, here’s a list of classes, and some school books,’ he said, handing me a bag.” Thanks everyone. Really enjoyed these!”

All the winners will be receiving signed copies of Blake Nelson’s Dream School. Jennifer + the Machine will also receive a copy of Blake Nelson’s Girl (as will Selena) and a Moleskine notebook.
