Girl Power Essay Contest Accepting Entries through March 30
In honor of Women’s History Month, the Montgomery County Commission for Women is inviting residents to participate in its third annual Girl Power Contest. Submissions should address the question, “If you had a superpower, how would you use that power to help girls and women?”
Montgomery County residents between the ages of 5 and 105 are encouraged to submit a short story, poem, drawing or anything else that addresses the contest theme. Entries will be judged on creativity and content; entrants should refrain from using vulgarities and racist or sexist comments or images. Winning entries will be selected from four categories: elementary, middle, high school and adult.
The contest is sponsored by the Montgomery County Commission for Women, Montgomery Magazine and Friends of the Library. Top entries will appear in Montgomery Magazine. All contest winners will be featured on the Commission for Women website and receive a swag bag, a photo with commissioners, and an invitation to be a guest of honor at a Montgomery County Commission for Women event of the winner’s choice.
Submissions will be accepted through March 30 (limit one per person). Written entries should be no more than 500 words. Winners will be announced by April 30.
More information and an online entry form is available here.
