i'll help you judge the entries, Zally.
for clarification - so not only going back to school (as the main theme), but you may choose to include themes of Christmas, whatev other religious holiday, New Year, Eve, or Valentine's Day if you wish.
12/30/13 Edit by Leader:
We've decided to extend the contest to January 31st. You can include themes. I don't know. Star, help. I can't think. What is life even? I'm not even in school and I'm to tired to think. Yay.
Basically, you can include themes of recent holidays, or just winter themes. Have fun. Go. Do it. Please. I like contests!
i would like at least 4 to 5 entries by the deadline before a winner can receive 100
for the first place prize. second place would get 50. if there's less than 4, first place winner will receive 50
instead, and the second place winner will receive 25
! To enter your contest entry, submit it to the group's "Contests" folder
Hi, this title might not be true for everyone (I started school a month ago), but I figured with 313 members, we could do another little contest thing. It's not gonna be big, and there's not a lot to go with it other than glory.So, tell us a back to school story. Real or fake, maybe something embarrassing or amazing that happened to one of your character's within their first month of school. Mine got hit by a car and broke his arm, but that happened in winter so it doesn't really count.
But seriously, just tell a short story about a first day/month of school tale. Don't make it incredibly long, because that's just not fun. I mean, it might be fun, but it's like, "C'moon!"Due date:
Winter Solstice (December 21st)
January 31st Midnight. Eastern Standard Time.Prizes:
First place gets 100
(assuming there's more than 3 entries) - or 50 if less than 4
Second place gets 50
(assuming there's more than 3 entries) - or 25 if less than 4

I'll need a panel of three judges, so one more. Anyone can donate a small gift for a prize as well. Note me or the group if you want to.
And yes, I realize we still have not given anything for the first (real) contest (my "I'm bored" contest does not count), so just keep your fingers crossed. We'll get around to it, eventually.
And that's all I've got for now.
***Also, a FREE publishing opportunity for you all!
The group is accepting submissions on a monthly basis. You can submit as many pieces as you like, and at the end of the month Black-Rose-117 will choose winners. At the end of the year, the pieces will be put into an anthology. All profits go to a cancer charity. Head on over there for details!
