Your work could be an essay, short story or poem on the themes of “Vermont––Its People, Its Places, Its History or Its Values.” Entries must be unpublished and less than 1,500 words long. The winning entry in each category will be selected by an independent panel of judges.

You can be a professional or amateur writer. Employees and subcontractors of Vermont Magazine or Green Mountain Power and previous winners are ineligible.
