Hermione wins 2nd place and $500 bucks in the online journalism contest judged by Dan Rather and Ann Curry! Proud, proud me. Thank you to those who helped to get her into the final round. One of the requirements of winning is she must get her essay 'officially' published. This is just one more great way to earn college $$ for when she goes off to Hogwarts (aka Bryn Mawr) in the fall. We are going to try to publish in Grist magazine, if anyone has any other publication ideas, they are most welcome.
