“And, the winners are . . .”

In honor of the new school year, Grammarly wanted to know what people were most excited about as they returned to school. We asked people from all over the web to send us an interesting photo and a caption explaining why school was cool for them. We got a number of inspiring, fun, and compelling responses, but a few really stood out to us.



Here are this year’s contest winners:

Second Runner-up: Geavanna Forino

First Runner-up: Kerri Yates

The sentiment in Kerri’s entry really won us over—and we weren’t the only ones! This submission was one of the most liked and shared. Have fun making lots of great memories this year, Kerri!

Grand Prize Winner: Lili Morris

With the most likes and shares of all the entries and a great message, this is our winning submission. Congratulations, Lili. Please keep inspiring our youth with curiosity and creativity!
