As everyone knows, December 21st is a significant date–it's the winter/summer solstice. But much more importantly, it's also the birthday of learnnavi.org!

To celebrate LN's first anniversary, several members of the community proposed and implemented a Na'vi Writing Contest.

The judges were Wm. Annis, Prrton, and Lance R. Casey—and their decisions are now in!

It gives me great pleasure to announce the Second Place Winners:

Beginners Verse: Reyona te Tsateka Ray'i'itan

Advanced Prose: Futurulus

Their winning entries are reproduced below.

Seykxel sì nitram, ma meylan! Mengeyä tìkangkxem txantsan lu nìngay.

Congratulations!

I'll announce the first place winners in the next post.
