The Brome Bright Lights story competition was once again sponsored by the Knowlton Lions Club and was organized by Danny McAuley and Lucy Hoblyn.

Other judges were Ingrid Bird, Wendy Seys and Jane Livingstone. It is always difficult to select the winners since the 137 stories submitted were so imaginative and creative. The overall winner of the $200 prize (selected from all the first-place winners) was Georgia Lavigne. The first place winner from each grade received $50, the second place a $25 prize.
