It’s time once again for our readers to put pen to paper for the 31st annual Spirit of Christmas writing contest.

There are three categories for the contest; ages 6 to 9, ages 10 to 14 and 15 years and over.

Winners from each age category will have their story published in the 2016 Season’s Greetings special editions and receive a prize.

Content can be either fiction or non-fiction and up to approximately 750 words.

Last year’s winners included Angela Justus with the tale of a trapper and his horse, Jessica Kelly wrote about her plans for helping others at Christmas and Kayla Edinger and her story about the real meaning of Christmas. There were also several honourable mentions.

Copy and photos or artwork can be submitted by email at editor@wltribune.com or dropped off at the office at 188 N First Avenue.

Deadline for the Spirit of Writing contest is Monday, Nov. 28.
