Grand Prize Winner
A Zoo Of One’s Own, by Carol [Essay]
Carol’s heartfelt essay “A Zoo Of One’s Own” won over all of the judges with it’s charming approach and well-crafted story. Despite it being one of the longest written entries in the contest, it held our attention and made us smile all the way through. We love what it captures about the Zoo World community, and how everyone can play the game in a different way.

Here was a world that allowed me to set up my own zoo, arrange it as I wanted it to be, and accumulate as many animals as I wanted.

You can read the rest on the contest winners page. It’s worth every minute. Congratulations, Carol, and enjoy your iPad!
These three entries stood particularly high, and were neck-and-neck in the running for the top prize. We felt each of them deserved recognition here on the blog. Each Honorable mention will receive the King of the Zoo Ultra Rare.
We loved Brenda’s stories of sharing Zoo World with her family. We enjoyed Linda’s video from beginning to end, and we’re also huge suckers for basset hounds. And Bill’s Poem? Well, you’ll have to read it for yourself. You won’t regret it!
Fantastic job, everyone.
