Top Ten - Week Five

Ok, I know I always say it's hard to choose just ten entries from all of the great ones you send in, but this week was the hardest yet. We spent a full day arguing, and even had to pull in extra judges! After all of that, it came down to a vote, and here are the ten winners:

Top Ten - Week Three

Things I loved about Youth Read this week:

  • I love that more than one of you made a blanket fort for the "Make Something" challenge :)
  • I love your appetite for adventurous food and seemingly cast iron stomachs!
  • I love that you took our weird poetry challenge and made actual, amazing poetry.
  • I love that so many of you took the time to truly listen to music as more than just background noise; there was a great range of albums and responses for the "Just Listen" challenge. I particularly love that someone chose the Barenaked Ladies' "Snack Time" album, because it is a work of genius.

What I don't love is that we can only choose ten entries from the hundreds we get every week...but choose we must, and here are our choices for Week Three:

Just Listen - "De Retour à la Source" by French Vanilla
First page poem by Alix
Challenge 4: Make something by Ashly
Just Listen! by Kkm13
Make Something: Cardboard Cameras by M. Canfield

Challenge 5: Just Listen by chuckvsyourmom
Challenge 4: Make Something (Road Map) by Quyenner
Page One Poem - Hollow City by Katelyn

Top Ten - Week Two

The Draw Something challenge is one of my favourites, because we get such an amazing range of entries (and possible also because I can't draw, so I'm always super impressed by people who can). So it should be no surprise that most of this week's Top Ten are drawings...

Draw Something - Thorin Oakenshield by MorganJFK
Summer Elephant by cindytn
Another Draw Something by ZZ
The Lonely Deadpool by BillyBobJoe
Geek Eats: Stargate Cake by M. Canfield
