  • Competition Comment: An easy choice for winner. Plus the top-three out-paced the other editorial submissions. Be concise when writing an editorial. Do not put the reader to sleep by writing a column or feature story pretending to be an editorial. Low scores resulted, especially having to go to another page to continue reading the editorial. Look at the winner, and it's layout for an editorial page. Moreover, look at your big dailies and how those papers write editorials. Make your arguments, and get to the point. No fluff and filler. Don't put your reader to sleep (or the judge) Layout also helps your words.
