This year the writing contest theme centers around family legend, rumor, or a skeleton in the closet. Did you hear a family legend about how you were related to someone famous but didn’t know if it was true? Was there a rumor about an ancestor that you heard or a “skeleton in the closet” that no-one knew?

 
Entries are due May 31, 2021. You may email Dr. Nancy Todd at digestcoordinator@ewgsi.org if you have any questions about a story you are considering. She will not be serving as a judge and not submitting a story, so she is free to help others. Good luck!
