The 14th Annual Slice of Life Story Challenge (SOLSC) will run from Monday, March 1 through Wednesday, March 31. Everyone who participates in the adult challenge–not to be confused with the classroom challenge–for all 31 days will be eligible to win a prize at the end of the month.
For those new to the challenge, a little incentive can be what helps you jump in and stick with 31 days of writing. For those who have participated before, you already know the biggest prize is how much this daily writing challenge gives back.
We hope you are as excited as we are! Just look at all these sponsors, from publishers, friends of the community, and even some of our very own Slicers! We appreciate their generosity and unwavering support of our writing community.
The Community Expander Prize
The first prizes of the month will go to those who have intentionally and effectively expanded the community. Anyone who has recruited someone to join the SOLSC is eligible for this prize donated by Heinemann.
The SEAT Prize
Participants will have two opportunities to win the SEAT Prize as they write and comment throughout the challenge. The SEAT Prize represents the signature characteristics of the challenge: Scribing~Everyday~Augmentable~Time
The Mentor Prize
The Welcome Wagon Prize
Our Welcome Wagon volunteers inspire and support our newest community members and we want to thank those who take on this extra responsibility. Welcome Wagon volunteers will have two chances to win a prize during the challenge!
The Commenter of Quality Prize
Comments are so important and during the challenge, you can nominate someone who shares consistently meaningful or inspiring comments. Kids Can Press will award one winner with a great prize pack from their spring catalog!
The First Timer Prize
Corwin Press is sponsoring a collection of prizes specifically for our first-time Slicers! The titles include a variety of professional books for four winners.
The Decade or More Prize
If you’ve been participating in the SOLSC for ten years or more, you will be eligible for one of these great prizes!
The Spirit of the Challenge Prize
This prize is supported and sponsored by Highlights Foundation and represents the spirit of this challenge! One winner will be awarded an amazing opportunity. Take a look!
The SOLSC Classic Prizes
Because we continue to stay true to some traditions, we have the Classic Prizes. No matter how many years you have been a member of the SOLSC community, if you wrote every day for the entire month, and you left at least three comments for other Slicers every day, then you are eligible for a Classic Prize. Take a look at the galleries of prizes from publishers, friends, and the slicing community!
We are looking forward to the month, and as much as we all love prizes, we especially can’t wait to connect with all of you as writers. Here’s to March!
*Due to the overwhelming support of publishers and friends of the community, there is potential for a mid-month prize winner to also win a classic prize following the challenge.
