''Show and Tell'' by Steven Smyth - Second-grader Ricky Lancaster has what he thinks is the ultimate prize to show his class—a discovery he calls a dinosaur bone. But the “fossil” he has pried from the earth is of more recent origin, and it is the key to solving another mystery that has been lost in time.  (Heat Winner Finalist)

''Trace of an Age'' by Kristen Kocak - 3 men find a relic (fossil) on their property.  They take it to a man in town that specializes in rare findings, he does not know exactly what it is, but thinks that it may have been used for protection or defense.  (1st Runner-Up )

''Unearthing the Cold Truth'' by William Bryan - A Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton missing for more than 70 years is unearthed on the plains of Northeastern Colorado.  An unqualified scientist comes to study the find, but the subterfuges he uses prove fruitless when he is murdered to keep the secret of the fossil.   (2nd Runner-Up )

''Luke 13-8'' by Cory Smith - Humanity, on the verge of extinction, has to rely on science for the rebirth of an entire civilization.  But how does one measure his own worth when you are just one face in a million?  (3rd Runner-Up )

''Traces'' by Melissa Tomjanovich - A surreal journey into the lives of two disconnected souls connected by fate.   (4th Runner-Up )
