At the height of its popularity, the SIYE Challenge received 15 to 25 submitted stories per Challenge. The judges had a lot of reading to do. The last few years has seen the Challenge submissions dwindle down to 2 or 3 per contest. A few occasions we were worried that we would have no submissions. With such a very low turnout lately, the Challenge is being put on hold at this time. I would like to thank a) those judges that continued to help out by reading and judging the stories and b) those authors that accepted the Challenge and came up with original stories to meet the it. Overall, we received over 550 stories over the years.
