<div> <font size="2"><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">Thank you to all who have shared information about genealogy writing competitions.&nbsp; When I posted my question, I had intended to mention that the Minnesota Genealogical Society, in cooperation with the Yankee Genealogical Society, sponsored its first writing competition in 2009.&nbsp; Details on the 2010 Michael Clark Writing Competiton will be announced in the next month or so.&nbsp; Meanwhile, I look forward to hearing about other competitions sponsored by local, regional or state societies.&nbsp; <br>

<div>Hello from Minnesota.&nbsp; I am preparing an article encouraging genealogy researchers to write research reports.&nbsp; I want to encourage people to be brave enough to submit their writing for peer review.&nbsp; I am aware of competitions sponsored by NGS, ASG and ISFHWE, but would like to know about genealogy writing competitions sponsored by other regional, statewide or national organizations.&nbsp; If you know of a competition, please let me (and others) know.&nbsp; Among other things, I would be interested to know if a competition provides written comments to entrants.</div>
