Continues Dilks, “Many of the merchants will provide old fashioned Valentine boxes in which to drop them in.   If I were entering I would drop the essay to all of them.  Each merchant will pick the essay that captures their heart and then overall merchants will get together and each read their choice and winner will be selected by secret ballot.  And the one winner will get it all.”
