  1. Does anyone know when the winner and finalists will be announced? I checked the Zinch rules page, but it said that “a winner will be announced no later then March 31st”- is this accurate?

    • Hey Haley-

      March 31st was the final day to enter stories, so it should take some time before a winner is announced. Let me know if I can help with anything else!


  2. I entered the $500 scholarship online but it did not say my entry was accepted or anything. It just brought me back to Zinch. How do I know if my entry was accepted?

  3. On the enter page, I filled in everything and I used word count tool to make sure I didn’t go over 600 words. But when I pressed enter, it thinks I have over that amount. What can I do?
