The easiest way to enter the Legacy Project's annual Listen to a Life Contest is using the online entry form. When you submit an entry online, you receive an automatic acknowledgement via e-mail.

If you wish to fax or mail your Listen to a Life Contest entry, please note that due to the large volume of entries we receive, we CANNOT acknowledge receipt of faxed or mailed entries. Also, DO NOT submit the same entry in multiple ways (e.g. via the online entry form and also by mail or fax).

Entries will not be returned, so do not include original photographs or materials. You will be judged solely on your story.

A faxed or mailed entry must be TYPEWRITTEN and RECEIVED by April 12, 2024. The entry must include the total number of words in the story (must be 300 words or less), entrant's first and last name and age, co-entrant's first and last name and age, relationship of entrants (i.e. grandchild/grandparent or young friend/grandfriend), entrant's telephone number (with area code), complete mailing address, a valid e-mail address (if available), and entrant's teacher's name and school name.

If you are a teacher submitting a group of stories from students, please include a cover sheet with your name and e-mail address along with the school name, mailing address, and phone number. You can be the contact person for the entire group, but each entry should still include the entrant's name and age, the co-entrant's name and age, their relationship, and the total number of words in the story (must be 300 words or less).

Fax entries to (866) 590-2922 or mail to Listen to a Life Contest, c/o Generations United, 80 F Street NW, Washington, DC 20001.

Winners will be notified and announced on this website by Wednesday, May 15, 2024.
