Hey, did you know we're sponsoring a writing contest? As one of our "On Our Minds" programming events, we're teaming up with the English Department to bring you The Great Outdoors Writing Contest. Prompted by this year's On Our Minds selection, A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson, we're looking for nature inspired entries from UMF students. Entries can be academic papers or creative prose, fiction or nonfiction - but they must relate to our theme of The Great Outdoors.
Prizes? But of course! There will be two prizes in each category (Academic and Creative works). The top prize is $40 for first place. Runner-ups in each category will win $20.
The contest will run from January 17, 2012 to Wednesday, April 11.
For more information on the contest or how to submit an entry, contact Bryce Cundick. (778-7224 or email@example.com.
