Start thinking Christmas. Start thinking contest.


Last year’s Farm and Dairy holiday story contest was such a hit, we decided to make it a tradition. Here’s the way it works: Come up with your own fictional holiday tale, share it with us, and it may be printed! Just get those entries in to us by Dec. 8.
Children and young adult age groups will depend on the number of entries. Adults will be in a separate category. Winners and runners-up will be notified by phone and their articles will appear in the Dec. 23 and Dec. 30 issues.
Farm and Dairy staff will judge stories on creativity, originality and writing quality. Last year’s winners are eligible. If you submitted a story last year, you cannot send the same story again this year.
Send your typed story of up to 450 words (700 words for adults) to Farm and Dairy, Holiday Story Contest, P.O. Box 38, Salem, OH 44460, or e-mail it to
Don’t forget to include your name, age, phone number and hometown.
Last year’s stories were such a treat that we can’t wait to see what tales you come up with this year!
