New contest opportunity – “Stories Handed Down”

Stories Handed Down is the theme of the Friends of Antigua Public Library’s annual story contest.

In a nutshell, it’s a short story and visual arts competition open to Antiguan students enrolled in forms 1 thru 5. To participate you must have a valid library card and will need to upload the stories before October 22nd.

In many ways, it’s an oral history project as much as it’s a short story/visual arts project as it requires participants to interview an elder. Samples of last year’s winning entries can be found among the other writings on the FOAPL’s Collecting Memories site.

For more on the competition itself visit them online
