      Intergeneration Foundation's Storytelling Contest goal is to emphasize
      and recognize storytelling as a way to connect generations.

      An age-old tradition to inform, educate and entertain, storytelling is
      now part of the
      high-speed internet. Write a story, poem or song (fiction, non-fiction,
      or a combination). Feature characters from at least two generations.
      One illustration, such as a drawing or photograph
      may be included and will be considered when judging the entry.

      Writing suggestions include, but are not limited to:
      Stories from an older person, like a grandparent, you have heard.

      Stories you think you might tell your children or grandchildren.

      Stories from history.

      Stories from different cultures.
      Cash Prizes:

      1st Prize- $500
      2nd Prize-$350
      3rd Prize-$150
      Including possible publication of each story.
