Health Eating Short Story Contest Rules

Healthy Eating Short Story 

TWU Health Studies is sponsoring a Healthy Eating Short Story Contest. Why? Because we want to encourage people to use fiction and humor as a way to share health information. Also, we just like to have fun.


1. You must write a fiction story that addresses and promotes the topic of healthy eating
2. Your story must be at least 1,000 words long and no longer than 5,000 words.
3. You must include a leprechaun and a monkey in your story. (You didn't think we could be completely serious, did you?)
4. Make it lighthearted or humorous, if you can, but in good taste.
5. The contest is open to anyone 18 or older.
6. Entries and contest form must be submitted to HSWritingContest @ gmail com
7. Entries must be typed, double-spaced in Microsoft Word. The contest form may be saved as a PDF or JPG.
8. Judges will select the top four stories and post them for voting on the HS blog
9. Entries will be accepted starting 8:00 am CST on August 1, 2012 till 5:00 pm CST on August 17, 2012 or until 25 entries are received, whichever comes first.

You can download these rules and the entry form here:

Prizes - We are feverishly working to secure prizes. Who knows what they might be? A writing book? A health promotion book? A dancing monkey? Probably not the last one, but maybe a stuffed monkey.
