Here Are the Winners of the Design Your Own Spanish Lesson Contest

After very careful consideration (and a couple of of bottles of wine) we’ve narrowed the submissions for the Design Your Own Spanish Lesson Contest to the top three.

Before I announce the winners, I want to take a moment to thank everyone who took the time to… hey, where did everyone go? I also want to thank the handful of readers who resisted the temptation to skip right to the names below for their patience.

And without further ado, here are the winners:

Claudia Hurtado Valenzuela

Calvin Staver

Jaime Smith

Congratulations to all of these talented folks!

If your name appears on the list, we will be contacting you in the near future to begin turning your idea into video reality!

The videos will be posted on this site as soon as they are completed.

Well, that’s enough for today. Hasta luego.
