Submitted by Fran Fowler and Donnette Farrell-Two contests coming up means two chances for you to win some cash. First – imagine winning $100 for just three minutes work! That’s right, we are giving out a $100 cash first prize for Hospital Day’s three minute film contest. Looking for Adventure is the theme. The rules are simple: General audience appropriate; three minutes or less; get it on a DVD to Donnette at Box 301, Queen Charlotte or call 559-4734, by June 4. The winners to be chosen on Hospital Day June 19! If needed we will have a short-listing showing before Hospital Day.The second chance to win cash is the fast approaching deadline of June 15, for the Fraser Ellis Writing Contest. Your entry should be the biography of an Islander, 1,000 words or less, double spaced, in English. Send it to Box 166, Queen Charlotte. This contest has $500 worth of prizes to be distributed. We are hoping that selected manuscripts will be read at an Arts Council event.Both of these events are to encourage you to have fun as well as get to know your neighbours, and provide a way of sharing with others too. (Plus, there’s the cash.)
