#NieldsXVII Story Contest : Week 16

It’s impossible to believe it has been 16 weeks! This week’s question was about travel, and we’re pretty happy with the winner. It was a broad question and we got a wide open answer. Thanks to those who took part, and we’ll see you for our final question of this incredible 17-week run on Monday.

#NieldsXVII Story Contest : Week 15

We had a broad question for this week. We were looking for cool ideas and maybe too, things to add to our reading/watching/listening list. The winning answer is a thinker, and we like that. Thanks to everyone who took part and see you on Monday with a new question!

#NieldsXVII Story Contest : Week 14

We really dialed down and got specific this week with our question. There’s nothing like a long winter to get you excited for outdoor concerts though. The winner’s story follows. This has been a great run on stories and we’ll see you again on Monday!

#NieldsXVII Story Contest : Week 13

This week’s question was a little out there, and we weren’t disappointed with the responses. The winning answer was both fun and thoughtful. It made us think a little of that line of Shakespeare’s, about music being the food of love. Thanks to the winner and everyone who participated this week. We’ll see you again on Monday!

#NieldsXVII Story Contest : Week 12

We opened this week’s question up a bit and got a lot of interesting responses. It was hard to pick just one, but we managed. We say it each week, but it really is great to read each story. Keep them coming. We’ll see you again on Monday. Thanks!

#NieldsXVII Story Contest : Week 11

Thanks to everyone who took part this week in the #NieldsXVII Story Contest. We’ll be back on Monday with a new question. In the meantime, do you have any questions for us? We’ve been asking them for 11 weeks now and getting great answers. If you’re curious about some Nields history we haven’t covered let us know.

#NieldsXVII Story Contest : Week 10

We got all excited for Spring when we wrote this week’s question. Then it went and got a little wintry on us again. Thanks to those who took part and we’ll be back Monday with a hopefully weather-appropriate new addition to the Story Contest.

#NieldsXVII Story Contest : Week 9

Since we had a repeat winner last week we felt justified in picking 2 winners for this one (even though one of those was also a repeat winner). The usual tie-breaker was no help because all 3 of us agreed both of these stories were pretty great.

#NieldsXVII Story Contest : Week 8

The number of responses this week was huge! We took a walk down memory lane with a few near-forgotten favorites and were super pleased to see that the freshest pressed cuts off XVII made the list too. This week’s winner got the ball rolling for Week 1, so we’re brainstorming for something to send her way other than a download. In the meantime, here’s her awesome answer.
