The Dallas Genealogical Society reminds all potential entrants to its 2013 Writing Contest that the deadline for submissions is August 31. The contest will accept original material, not previously published, from members and non-members, hobbyists and professionals.
Cash prizes will be awarded to the winning articles: first prize is $500, second prize is $300 and third prize is $150.
Among the judges will be J. Mark Lowe, a professional genealogist, author and lecturer.
Submissions will be judged on accuracy, clarity, and style. Winners will be announced at the annual DGS Awards Luncheon in December 2013 (winners need not be present), and will be published in a future DGS publication. All prizes may not be awarded.
