We received a large number of very well written scenarios, ranging across the breadth and depth of World War II. Every front and nationality was well represented and our contestants showed a remarkable amount of imagination and knowledge of the subject matter. Our four judges had their work cut out for them as they had to read and reread the entries and slowly thinned the scenarios down.
In the end, there were four finalists that our judges discussed at length. Finally, we had one winner, but we would like to take the time here to give honorable mentions to our other three finalists. Congratulations go not only to our winner and other finalists, but to all our contestants who made this such a challenging contest to judge.

Once again, our congratulations go out to our winner and honorable mentions. We look forward to running another contest featuring Contested Skies miniatures in the near future!
