We had such an AMAZING response to our blog contest. As you might recall, our contest question was:
"How will creating an AMAZING transcript
help my child achieve their dreams?"
We had over 60 responses and they ranged from over-the-top creative to matter-of-fact statements. All were heartfelt and sincere. After much deliberation (and some debate) we are giving the prize to Morgan! Her entry was a heartfelt request for a Christmas present for her mother, Ellen. Morgan wins the 4-Step Total Transcript Solution. Here is what Morgan wrote:

(I would like to give her this for Christmas.)
