    Hi, I submitted something quite a few months ago, and I haven’t heard of any developments.
    Could you please tell me what is happening with the contest?

    Dear Chaya, Maital, and All JGU Students/”Voice of Sarah” Submitters-Who’ve-Been-Wondering:

    Greeting and blessing! We hope this finds you well, and that you had a pleasant Shabbos.

    The intent of this e-message is to update and inform you regarding our latest writing contest, for which many of you entered original compositions: “Voice of Sarah – How Does Our First Matriarch Inspire You?”

    Admittedly, the subject has been quieter over this past year and somewhat delayed, due to several major factors: the move of JGU Headquarters to a new location, the imminent publication of two new books by the JGU Press, and the birth of a new baby to the Laber family. Mazal Tov!

    We would like to thank you all, especially those who’ve inquired over recent months as to the contest’s activity, for your unflagging interest, tremendous patience, and invaluable support. It is our goal, b’ezrat Hashem, to announce the winners within the next four to six weeks! Meanwhile, submissions are undergoing final reviews by our panel of judges.

    G-d willing, we should merit only good news to share, and many new beginnings to celebrate!

    Jewish Daughters, future mothers and leaders: Continue to use the “voice of Sarah” within you to inspire others and bring light to the world; you’ve got the power!

    Wishing you a week of true goodness and blessing, and a happy and healthy summer!
    Tzipporah for Team JGU

You may have also received an email from JewishGirlsUnite@gmail.com relaying a similar message, along with some info about our new online summer series and also upcoming Jewish Girls Summer Retreat.
