The results of the Jack Hume Heather & Thistle poetry writing competition for 2018 were announced at the formal dinner at the recent RBANA AGM & Conference in Philadelphia. The judges commented on the high standard of the entries this year. This was particularly gratifying since sadly Jack Hume, the donor of this trophy in 2016, passed away earlier this year.
The winners were:
First: Jim Hutchens, Calgary, Alberta.
Second: Marc Sherland, Glasgow, Scotland (a non-exec director of RBWF).
Third: Patricia Moffitt, Severna Park, Maryland.
