Our journal editor, David Dellinger, did a post on this topic a short time ago, but it deserves additional attention.
This is our First Annual Family History Writing Competition and we are pretty excited about it. It is open to one and all, with cash prizes being awarded of $50 for first prize, $30 for second, and $20 third. The deadline for submissions is July 31st, and the winning paper will be published in the winter issue of Pinellas Genealogist.
Entries should be based on the author's personal research of a family history or genealogical account of family lines and lives, discussing the steps followed and the conclusions that resulted from the research.
For details and rules look in the Spring edition of the journal, Pinellas Genealogist, or go to the link on the home page of Pinellas Genealogy Society's web site at http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~flpgs/
This is a great opportunity to do some of that writing that you have been putting off, have some fun doing it, and possibly have it pay off for you.
