Session 3 Winners: Environment

All winners are invited to the Writers' Square Awards Banquet (Sunday, November 6, 2016 at Hilton Hotel Los Angeles/San Gabriel). Each of the winners will receive their scholarship via mail, and winners must attend the Awards Banquet to receive their trophy. Audience Favorite Winners were determined by the number of votes they received by the Session 3 deadline.
