I'm going to start a writing contest. Stories can be about anything.

Requirements:

1) Must be appropriate for younger readers and nothing too violent or gory.
2) Must be at least 300 words and less than 700 words.
3) Must be an original creation, completely and entirely.
4) No more than 1 entry per person.

Failure to meet the requirements will result in disqualification from the contest.

Prizes:

1st place: An appropriate story about a topic of your choice, less than 1000 words and written exclusively by me.
2nd place: An appropriate quiz about a topic of your choice, less than 25 questions and created exclusively by me.
3rd place: An appropriate poll about a topic of your choice created exclusively by me.

All entries are due by November 15, no exceptions. Winning stories will be posted on a separate thread, and requests for stories, quizzes, or polls will also be posted there. Possible (although unlikely) updates on rules will be posted on this thread. Have fun!

How about not having a maximum amount of words?

And, being kid-friendly. I mainly focus on stories that would give 9-year-olds and such tight-terrors, along with mild profanity, so.

That's the point of a contest you two. Keep it clean, fit the requirements. You won't always have things your way in a literary field. Leaving your comfort zone is good for you.

Once, there was a little girl named Kealyn, and a little boy, named Jamie. They were both twelve and had been best friends their whole lives. One day as they were sitting down watching a movie, Kealyn began to fly! Kealyn screamed as Jamie just stared. They soon found out that Kealyn was very special, she was a wizard. Jamie was so upset that his best friend had to go to a place where she would not be able to see him again. But, the day before Kealyn left, he was fishing and fell into the harbor! Everyone knew he was dead when they saw that he was gone hours later... However, Jamie burst from the sea, turns out, the sea was magical! So Jamie got to go away with Kealyn and they lived happily ever after!
