August Rising Star Award Winners

Our monthly Rising Star Awards recognize some of Associated Content's most promising new Contributors. Please help us in congratulating these five talented individuals, and welcoming them to the AC Community:

Jolynne M Hudnell writes about what she knows—and that's a lot. Her article topics range from parenting and health tips to crafting guides, all written from personal experience. She has earned over 20,000 page views in just over 3 months of publishing on AC.

Rachel de Carlos has lived all over Europe but now resides in California. Her content focuses mainly on life in Greece, Israel, London and Santa Barbara - a truly unique and worldly perspective on "local" content.

In just over two months, Roz Zurko has published 133 pieces of content, racked up nearly 60,000 page views and climbed to a Clout 8. Her content spans her many areas of interest, from arts & entertainment to health & wellness.

As a jewelry designer, Lorraine Yapps Cohen is able to provide readers a unique insight into gemstones, precious metals, jewelry settings and jewelry shopping. Her expertise over her subject matter is readily apparent in the content she publishes.

Drew Bush recently graduated from college with a Bachelor of Science degree. His content is informed by his studies, as well as his intimate knowledge of Nevada and interest in arts and entertainment. He has published over 130 pieces since joining AC in early June.

Congrats to all! Be sure to visit our Forum to start nominating your favorite AC up-and-comers for next month's awards!
