2019 Gold Hermes Creative Award for Single Blog Post

Lacey wins for blog writing!

The Smiles All Around! team is doing its happy dance! Our own Lacey, who writes the Smiles All Around! blog Let’s Play! With Lacey, just received a 2019 Gold Hermes Creative Award for single blog post. In her post, “Dear Diary, What Costume Should I Choose for Halloween?,” Lacey reflects on her mission to find the perfect Halloween costume. Read the award-winning blog post at https://www.smilesallaround.com/2018/10/08/lacey-diary-halloween-costume/.

Here’s how Lacey’s award-winning blog post began. Lacey starts a diary on National Dear Diary Day. She wants to write, but she doesn’t know what to write about. She thinks and thinks, but no ideas come to her. Nothing inspires her to write. Just when Lacey is losing hope that she will be a diarist, fate intervenes.

An invitation arrives inviting Lacey to her first Halloween party. But, alas, she doesn’t have a clue what she is going to be. As she asks her friends for suggestions, she suddenly gets an idea for her diary. She will chronicle her talks with her friends and then share reflections about their ideas in her diary. Lacey showcases her journey to find the perfect Halloween costume in her diary, which she posted on the Smiles site.
