Finalist for a Screenplay Competition

I'm happy to announce that I found out today that I'm 1 of 3 finalists for a UCLA Screenwriting Competition called the Sheldon Award. I only submitted the script last Monday, but already they've read all the submissions and narrowed it down to 3! And one of the other finalists is going to be a writer partner with me!

Hurray!

Awesome! Is there a prize? Like will it be made into a blockbuster movie?

Very cool! Which script is it?

Wow! That's amazing. I suppose aside from any money it's also a pretty big honor. The program is hard enough just to get into, let alone win a big award once you're in it.

the award would be awesome, but winning 15-2 in indoor soccer is probably much better. but we all miss the red socks.
