How very amazing that you are putting on this contest. Many teens don't think they can write but then when they sit down and actually do it, they may be pleasantly surprised. Can't want to see some of the entries.


There is no doubt that those who are being offered the opportunity to play online poker in the United States have definitely been given a gift. Millions of other people across the country are hoping to receive the same gift in the future, but only when there are expanded opportunities to play different games using clean wind energy tower. But it may not be any time soon that we see this happen. Building these types of websites is not an inexpensive venture. That being said, if the states that approve online gambling handed them over to the private industry, who usually will have the money to build the web sites, then the industry will grow even more. Not only will the websites be better, and operational, but there is a growing number of people in the United States who feel that the government should stay out of certain businesses, and this is especially be true for online casinos. The state governments are a lot bigger than most businesses, so when there is as much money flowing around the Internet at an online casino as there would be if it were legal in every state, then there will be even more room for corruption.


I'm glad that you are as excited for the event as we are! Finalist and winning stories will be posted in June. In the meantime, feel free to read entries from previous years!
