I’m excited to be a partner in this contest beginning today for military spouses to tell their own stories. Here’s the press release going out on PRWeb:
The season 2 premiere of Lifetime’s ARMY WIVES television series is the occasion of a new contest sponsored by military relocation service YourMilitary.com. The First Annual “Tell-Your-Own-Story” contest is open to all present and past spouses of military personnel.
Submissions of not more than 500 words will be accepted from Sunday, June 8 – the date of the first episode of season 2 of ARMY WIVES – through on Sunday, June 29. Multiple submissions allowed.
Story submissions should feature the happiest or saddest or most significant moment as a military spouse, and stories must focus on an event actually connected to the military. Your Military community ambassadors will serve as judges for the contest.
The spouses of personnel from all branches are eligible – Army (including Reservists and National Guard), Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard.
To submit a story, go to www.YourMilitary.com and click on “Contest Submission.” The contest rules will appear on the submission page.
In honor of the Fourth of July, YourMilitary.com and YourMilitarySpace.com will feature the best 15 submissions. All 10 2nd place winners will receive prizes from YourMilitary.com, including the new book Mrs. Lieutenant: A Sharon Gold Novel by Phyllis Zimbler Miller (www.mrslieutenant.com). The five grand prize winners will also receive Season 1 of ARMY WIVES on DVD.
“Yourmilitary.com is pleased to offer military spouses – both men and women – the opportunity to tell their stories in their own words,” Nancy Brown, president of Your Military, said. “We look forward to sharing the best of these stories with our world-wide audience.”
YourMilitary.com makes relocation easier for military families by helping these families learn about their new communities before moving. YourMilitary.com also offers job websites for every location.
I want to encourage any past or present military spouse to submit to the contest. This is your opportunity to tell your own stories.Technorati Tags: army wives, officers wives, officers wife, Vietnam War, Mrs. Lieutenant, Iraq War, contest, Lifetime, military spouses, prizes, YourMilitary.com
