Sharpen your pencils and dust off your keyboards because The Baker County Press is sponsoring one more holiday-themed writing contest, a Christmas short story, with $50 in prize money up for grabs in each age division.
The age divisions will be as follows: 13 and under, 14-18 and 19 and over. Authors must reside or attend school in Baker County. Previous winners are not eligible, so if you haven’t entered one of our writing contests yet, now is the time.
Christmas-themed short stories of no more than 2000 words must be received by December 16 and include the author’s name, age and contact phone number.
All entries will be judged by the newspaper’s staff for creativity, completeness and entertainment value as well as grammar, spelling, punctuation and the like. Entries may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, by mail to P.O. Box 598, Macclenny, FL 32063, or hand delivered to our office at 104 S. 5th St. Mon-Friday 9 am – 5 pm.
