Each year I like to commemorate Remembrance Day (11th of November) by having a Poppy Competition.
This year the prize will be a Key Ring
The back bears the inscription RSL - Respecting the Past - Securing a future - Lest we Forget
(RSL = Returned and Services League)
In order to enter you MUST write a short paragraph on WHY you would like the Poppy Prize (what it means to you etc). And then submit it - along with your name/blogging name - as a comment to this post.
Must be PG-13! (if you feel that using a rude word is required then bleep it out - let's think of the potential that one day my Mum might read this)
You do NOT need to be a regular reader of this blog to enter (sniffle... but you COULD stick around and read more - just saying)
You can be from anywhere in the world.
Past Contest winners are welcome to enter (The judge is impartial and not me)
If you win - you will need to supply me with a mailing address. I promise to hold the information safely and never share it beyond my Post Office.
If you leave your entry under the "Anonymous" tag - please be sure to add your name or nickname at the bottom so I can track you down later should you win.
If you find that Blogger won't let you post a message or worse - it disappears into the ether - then email me directly (you can find my email address under my profile)
The Winner will need to contact me by last day of November 2013 at the latest with their mailing address or there will be a redraw.
The Winning comment will be judged on or about the 20th of November
***just in case the whole idea of writing something is wigging you out, I have included some examples on how you could frame your entry***
"I would love to win the Poppy Coin because it reminds me of the service that my *insert name/relative/friend* gave to our country"
"Would be a cool thing to have in my memorabilia cabinet - along with my other Remembrance Day badges"
