Battle of Wits and Words

Let’s start the New Year off in a good mood. Let’s have a contest!

Contest Tittle: In A Moment 

Prize: $20 gift card to Barnes and Nobel for 1st place. $15 gift card to Barnes and Nobel for 2nd place. $5 gift card to Starbucks for the 3rd place.
The prompt: Describe a moment that inspired you and what change you decided to take as result.  Sometimes it’s the little things that make the biggest impact.
The idea: Write an essay no more than 500 words; or no more than 300 words if you also include an photo.
The deadline: February 1st, 2012. Entries will be posted up to this date. On this day the winners will be announced.
The Judges: There will be three people reading the essays, and will be collaborating on who wins.
The Fine Print: All work must be original, including the photographs. All work will be emailed to toolbox.submissions@gmail.com. Include in your email: Your real name, a penname for your work to be posted under (optional), and the essay.

This could be an essay about something small: Like starting to write poetry because of your first kiss. Volunteering at the animal shelter because your puppy felt ill. Or it could be about a huge change in your life:  Like moving to a new home because you saw a house falling apart on 6th avenue. I leave it entirely to your creative whims.

Calvin and Hobbes have already set the rules: There are no rules.
