  1. Hello!
    Many of my wonderful students have been selected to be published in VV and have been asking when they will get to see the book. Any idea of when they will be mailed out?
    Thank you,

    • Hi, Stephanie – we have them and we are in the process of sending them out. Thanks so much for your participation! The book looks beautiful!

  2. Hello. I too had children selected to be published last year in the poetry and prose contest. I am wondering when we will get to see their published work. Or did we somehow miss that publication?
    Thank you for providing this opportunity for our young authors.
