You don't have to wear a red hat or black boots to enter the EWGS Writing Contest.
All you need to do is sit down and WRITE. The theme for 2021 centers around family legend, rumor or a skeleton in the closet. Wouldn't you like to tell your story, be it spicy or bland?
I have submitted my story, yahoo. I just told the stories I remember about an ancestor and some were sad and some were "juicy." The side benefit of doing this is that you've created a mini-biography for an ancestor that can then be saved and shared. That would make you a winner in any contest.
All the entering details are on our website (www.EWGSI.org) under Members Only as this is a contest for EWGS members only. There will be prizes: 1st place-$100. 2nd place-$75. 3rd place-$50. Entries are due 31 May 2021.
So get your pencil and hop to it.
