Entries Are Being Accepted for the 2013 Dallas Genealogical Society Writing Contest

WritingCompetitionSubmissions for the Dallas Genealogical Society 2013 Writing Competition are due by August 31, 2013.  You do not have to be a DGS member to enter and the articles do not necessarily have to be about Dallas genealogy.

Articles are to be 1,500-5,000 words in length, unpublished, and should fall into one of the following categories:

  • basic and advanced methodologies and case studies (not limited by geography)
  • family histories and genealogies, particularly those linked to North Texas, including those who came from or left to settle elsewhere
  • historical events in North Texas with a local family connection
  • ethnic, house, or military histories related to North Texas

Monetary prizes will be awarded as follows:

  • First Place – $500
  • Second Place – $300
  • Third Place - 150

Winners will be announce at the Annual DGS luncheon in December.

Complete details, including rules and submission guidelines, can be found at the DGS website.
