14. The Entry
Type in the contest entry. MAXIMUM 300 words (and every word counts) or the

at 300 words, so you must count the number of words before you submit.
Contest entries will be judged by a committee based on the following criteria:
1/3 writing quality, including creative presentation; 1/3 content depth and
evocativeness; 1/3 appropriateness to theme, particularly the ability to capture
a timeless idea, insight, or theme (big or small) based on real-life experience.

15. Total Number of Words
Count the total number of words in the contest entry. Remember, every word
counts and the maximum is 300 words. The number of words will be checked
by the judging committee and the entry will NOT be read if there are more
than 300 words. Entrants will be DISQUALIFIED.
