Your Digital Digest committee works constantly behind the scenes to ensure that you, EWGS member, has an interesting and worthwhile publication to read. Chair Dani Lee is a very organized person (see her agenda and printouts?) and spends hours planning each of our Digest's quarterly issues.
The Digital Digest is posted on our society website,www.EWGSI.org, and current issues are available only to members while the archives holding past issues are open to all.
Dani Lee obtains some of her material via writing contests. Here is her blurb for the 2014 contest:
This is a reminder that the 2014 Writing Contest deadline is May 31, 2014.
The subject or topic chosen (“How My Family Came To The Pacific Northwest”) is very broad and was selected to give everyone in EWGS an opportunity to write for the contest. Please refer to the flyer published in the Winter 2013 issue of the Digital Digest (at our website, www.EWGSI.org) for specific writing guidelines.
Additionally, we still need judges. If you are just not interested in writing, you can be a judge to read all the entries! Please let me know you would like to judge the contest by sending your name and email address to firstname.lastname@example.org. Judges shall remain anonymous.
Sharpen those pencils, get the fingers on your keyboards and give us some great stories of how you or your family came to the Pacific Northwest.
And please remember the deadline is May 31st !!!

The Digital Digest is our publication...... and it is ours only because we, the members of EWGS, take ownership in the publication by submitting materials, articles, contest entries and ideas. Hope you jump in and join us.
