A few years ago the Reader held a writing contest. Topic? Your neighborhood. Over 600 San Diegans submitted essays from around the county.
Now it's a monthly contest. Any time you post a blog on the neighborhood pages, you are automatically in the running to win one of three cash prizes:
1st place: $500
2nd place: $250
3rd place: $100.
Winners are also published in the printed version of the Reader.
You have until midnight, the last day of every month, to post a blog and be entered into that month's competition.
Find your neighborhood or campus, and follow the instructions to create a blog.
