Christmas stories are sought

Since 1959, the Deseret Morning News has sponsored the contest "Christmas I Remember Best." The paper will accept entries until Dec. 5.

All entries should be original, true and approximately 700 to 800 words in length.

Judges prefer stories that cover a wide variety of Christmas experiences, including humor. Ideally, stories should be written using a computer. Legible handwritten entries are acceptable. The author's name, address, daytime and evening phone numbers and e-mail address, if the entrant has one, must be included.

Four to six stories will be chosen for publication, and the Deseret Morning News will present an award of $50 to each of the winners. The winning entries will be published in the paper the week before and on Christmas Day.
