One hundred and four times we have wept with you and we have felt your pain and struggles as you navigate the Australian education system.  One hundred and four times we have also laughed through our tears at your optimism, creativity and dyslexic power to triumph over immense challenges.  Each of your letters, these precious red letters, have changed the world and have begun change in our country.  

Politicians have read the red letters, teachers have read them, journalists have read them and so have your brother and sister dyslexic learners.  You have inspired us all with your powerful words and dyslexic superpowers and these letters will go on to speak to policy makers all over our country and beyond.  

We; the organising committee, Jackie French, Harper Collins and Audible want to thank you all for writing.  We want you to know that each one of your red letters has won our hearts.  Although there can only be some major winners, you have all won because your red letters have gone out into our world and are now beginning to effect change.  Thank you for bearing your dyslexia on your shoulder and for being brave enough to speak out and to tell your stories.  For this reason we are so pleased to let you know that our wonderful sponsors have awarded every one of your red letters a prize.  Harper Collins and Jackie French have awarded you a specially chosen book from Jackie's collection and Audible have awarded you all three audiobooks to enjoy forever.
