Entries will be judged by Tribune staff in each of three categories: 12 and under, 13 to 18 and 19 and above. Stories must be no more than 1,500 words to be considered, and most adhere to the Christmas Spirit theme with a clear and original storyline. Artwork can also be accompanied with each submission.
