Winner: Introductions by LA Henderson
Henderson's short piece explores the inner struggle of a young woman trying to define herself separately from how others see her. Indulging in an activity she loves, but that others see as provocative causes her to battle with her emotions. She alternates between pure enjoyment of dance, despair, and self-loathing as the piece continues. It is easy to empathize with Carmen as we each have or will struggle with self- definition in opposition to others' opinions of who we are and what we do.

A Pilot's Guide to Washington

This book is a guidebook for private aviators in Washington State, or folks visiting the State. Washington State is among the most beautiful and diverse states in the Union. There are flat and dry desserts, stunning basalt formations, towering mountains, rolling grass hills, thick rain forests, island archipelagos, and lakes and rivers and straits and sounds. Well, one sound. And we have roughly a billion airports to visit. (I'm exaggerating slightly.) It would be shame to be a pilot living in or visiting Washington State and not deeply partake of the richness of this opportunity.
