I’m so excited to share our 2012 Writing Contest Short Story finalists with you all today! First, though, I’d like to say thanks to our intern, Autumn, who was kind enough to help us choose our finalists. We do have three finalists out of quite a few fantastic entries, and we’d like you to help us choose between them and Hayley Schoeppler’s essay, Looking Behind, for an overall winner. The person who gets the most votes will win a $50 gift card to Amazon.com!

1. When Pigs Fly by Lane Elder.
