    Hello … I think the winners are not scheduled to be announced until ‘early spring’ however I got an email a few weeks ago with a certificate appointing me this year’s “Ambassador of the Spanish language in your country” … does this mean I’m a finalist? Or is this a consolation? Anyone know? I found one other person who got this same appointment in Nigeria. 172 countries participated so I assume no more than 172 of these went out, but my piece was in English.
    Let me know your thoughts.

    I submitted my story yesterday, but I stll haven’t got a confirmation email. I send the same story again but still haven’t got a reply. Did anyone else face the same problem or will I be getting it later? 😐😐

    Hi Ma’am,

    I submitted an entry this morning and I was wondering if you received any confirmation email or anything after the submit because I haven’t. Should I be worried? 😛
