It’s that time of year again when the 100 Mile House Free Press is offering residents of the South Cariboo an opportunity to enter the annual Christmas Contests.
The first contest is for all writers to pen a story with the theme of “The Best Christmas in the South Cariboo.”
Stories must include your name, contact information and age category (senior – 50+ years; adult – 20-49 years; teen – 13-19 years; and youth – 12 years and under). Stories can be no longer than 500 words; they may be disqualified if they are longer.
Prizes will be awarded to the winner of each category.
The entry deadline is at 5 p.m. on Dec. 4.
The second contest is for all cooks and bakers in the South Cariboo. We are looking for the recipes, stories and photos of your favourite yuletide food and special treats.
Deadline is 5 p.m. on Dec. 4; prizes are awarded by random draw.
