In the October 2015 Chicago Genealogical Society Newsletter, I happened to notice that the society is offering a writing contest with prizes that will take place between September 1, 2015 through May 30, 2016.
The contest is open to both members of the society as well as non-members of the society.
The society will be offering the following prizes:
- $500 for 1st Place
- $250 for 2nd Place
- $100 for 3rd Place
Take a look at the following 3 page PDF that provides all of the rules and requirements associated with this writing contest.
Lots of rules and requirements but they are not impossible. If you are interested, read many times over the Rules and Requirements for the contest so your submission will be valid for evaluation.
I can’t say that I have seen such contests offered very frequently. This one stands out from a society local to our area. Also, this contest is open for another 7 + months. You can’t say there is not enough time or that you would be hurried for time!
Read the PDF package above. Lay out your plan. Start writing. Make your submission.
Sounds pretty straightforward!
Give it a try and put some extra money in your pockets as well as gaining acclaim in a big way!
