Submit your work

The Augusta Chronicle is inviting local youths and adults to submit artworks, poems and short essays on the topic What Being an American Means to Me.

We'll award $50 for the best artwork and $50 for the best-written entry in two divisions: adults and youths (age 16 and younger).

Original poems and essays must be fewer than 200 words. Original artworks may be drawings, paintings or photographs. Pencil drawings are acceptable, but colorful works are preferred for best reproduction. Size should not exceed 11-by-17 inches. One entry per person. Submissions cannot be returned.

Mail entries to American Spirit, The Augusta Chronicle Newsroom, P.O. Box 1928, Augusta, GA 30903. Written entries also may be faxed to 722-7403 or e-mailed to feature@augustachronicle.com. Entries should include your name, address, and daytime and evening phone numbers. Youth entries also should include the child's age, grade, school and parent's name.

Submissions must be received by Monday. Winners will be notified by phone by June 20. The Chronicle will publish the winners of our contest and other top entries in our special section on Thursday, July 4. For more information, call Features Editor Tharon Giddens at 823-3347, or send e-mail to tharon.giddens@augustachronicle.com.
