Guideposts Sweet 16 Scholarship Contest

(This news courtesy of WV Writers Secretary Rhonda White)

You love the true stories in Sweet 16 — true stories by real teen girls just like you. Now here’s your chance to write your own . . . and score a sweet chunk of change for your college fund! (Prizes range from $500 to $16,000.)

What should you write about? Well . . . pretty much anything! Relationships. Family. Friends. A tough time or a scary situation that you made it through. Basically, any experience that affected you deeply or changed your life for the better. (Your story should be first-person — from your point of view — and not more than 1,600 words. No fiction or poetry, please!)

The deadline for entries is November 1, 2006.
