It's almost time for all the entries to be gathered up and be judged. However, if your piece is finished, that doesn't mean the work is over. It's time to proofread your items.

The current Due date is Feb 15th, but this might change If enough contestants PM me about it.
The winners will be announced about 2 weeks after that. : )

Here are the majors you should look for first while you proof-read.
* 1200 words minimum? You need to check the number, otherwise, It won't be accepted if it's too short.
* Title? Titles say something about your story. Better have one!
* 2 Chemistry References? This HAS TO BE IN THERE. and it should be HIGHLIGHTED OR BOLD.

Ok, now that you've checked to make sure it's within the rules, start checking for:

Spelling?
Grammar? (neither of these will really be judged, but it helps when we read these)
1.5 spacing would be nice D : not judged either though

Anyways, just make sure everything is there. The best way to proofread something is to print it out, grab a pencil, and read it out loud. Goldfishes make the best audience. They may be found in your local pet store.

The Judges Are NOT responsible if your entry is NOT within the rules of the contest come the due date. It will be discarded and not judged. All the rules are there in the contest page for YOU, so please read them. There are too many entries for the judges to proof read for you. : ( So don't blame us ...please T_T
