The National Society of Newspaper Columnists is sponsoring a Will Rogers Writing Contest, which is open to writers everywhere who are interested in the writings of Will Rogers, the philosopher-humorist whose words are still as alive as when he kept America laughing, and thinking, in the 1920s and ‘30s.
Prizes will be awarded for entries that best reflect the Rogers style of writing.
In addition to national recognition, the first place winner will receive a free registration (worth $250) to the Will Rogers Writers' Workshop, to be held March 15-18, 2007 at the Renaissance Convention Center Hotel in downtown Oklahoma City. Second place entitles the winner to half-price registration (worth $125) and third place will earn a $50 discount on registration. The awards are not transferable.
