    Re: over the time period

    "The results and winners will be announced in January" is fine.

    I don't know what you're trying to say with "over the 1st time period". The first of how many? How many what? What time period?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: over the time period

    For example, there are two contest time periods:
    I time period - from March through May;
    II time period - from October through December.
    I need to say that the winners over the first/second time period will be announced in June/January.

    Re: over the time period

    It seems that you have two contests, one from March to May, and one from October to December.
    Why not keep it simple and say "The winners of the March to May competition will be announced in June"?
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”
