The eagle-eyed may notice that Hannah was our Runner Up last year. We blind judge our stories, which means that it is quite an achievement to get into the shortlist two years in a row, never mind winning a prize. I think we're going to hear more about Hannah, and we're hoping she will do a little interview for us in the near future. I may have to ban her next year though, or better still, recruit her into our team of judges!
