Have you ever thought about how to honor a person who has inspired you? Maybe you would like to create a lasting testament to a person whose talents, ideas, values, or perhaps just friendship, made an impression on you or helped you in some way.
The Village at Waterman Lake wants to inspire you and others to write an essay that does just that, and will share your inspiration with others. “Chronicle a Senior Story” is an invitation to write an essay about a senior you admire – it can even be you!
The only requirement is that you personally know or knew the subject. To enter, submit a 1000-1500 word original essay about a senior who has greatly influenced your life, or humanity in general, in a positive way.
The winning essay will be decided by popular vote on line, and the author will receive a $500 prize.
File your essay online at www.facebook.com/VillageRetirement. Look for the “Enter” button and follow the steps to submit your story.
On July 1, voting by the general public will open, and continue for two weeks.
From July 16 to July 20, votes will be tallied. The winner, decided by majority vote, will be announced by July 20.
Spread the word about this inspiring competition!
