Origin Stories Deadline Is Here!
With today's deadline for submitting chapter origin stories, we’re moving into the judging phase of the contest. You shared some great stories about the origin of your Trout Unlimited chapters. Take a look at the submissions at the Origin Stories group page. If you don't see your submitted story in the group page, let us know.
During the judging phase we will ask the contest committee to carefully go through all the submitted stories to decide on their favorites. These top stories will then move into the final voting round. This is where you, the entire TU membership, will select the best of these great stories. It ought to be fun to watch the voting numbers go up daily.
We will announce the finalists on May 19th and voting will begin right away. Urge your fellow members to log in at tu.org and vote on their favorite stories too. Voting will be open May 19th through May 28th. We will make the formal announcement of the Origin Stories grand prize winner on May 31st.
Thanks again to all of you who have submitted stories and to the Fly Fishing Film Tour for donating the grand prize screening. Please check them out at www.flyfilmtour.com. We have some great ideas for future contests, but welcome your feedback, so let us know if you would like to see more contests at the Origin Stories group page.
