We have two entries so far in our scary Halloween story contest.


We're offering prizes of $75 for first place, $50 for second place, and $25 to third place.

To enter, give us your best scary story. It could be something spooky that actually happened to you, something wholly original, or your version of a favorite story from summer campfires past.

You can submit a written version of your story or a video.

The best stories will be featured in the Sunday Your Life section on Oct. 25, and online at augustachronicle.com/living.
