Deadline for Blue Banner, Best Story contests extended

January 12, 2022

Since Jan. 15 is a Saturday and the following Monday is a holiday, we are moving the deadline for submission of Blue Banner (website and print) and Best Story contest entries to Tuesday, Jan. 18.

Please remember that Best Story contests will be submitted digitally using the submission links under CONTESTS. Blue Banner Print still requires an entry form and two copies of the paper. Blue Banner Website requires an entry form with working URLs.

Remember that the Winter Conference will be held at the SIUC Student Center Feb. 23. If you want to take advantage of the reduced registration fee, fill out the form on the Winter Conference page and submit your check by Feb. 1. Sign-up will also be available at the door. A sheet will be emailed in advance to members so that you can specify the names of students who will compete in on-site contests. We are hoping this cuts down on confusion the morning of the conference. If you need to make a last minute substitution, you can let me know when you arrive.

Looking forward to seeing you in person,

Cathy Wall
