(This post was last modified: 06-22-2019, 10:07 AM by artermis.)

What is this?

The 1st Annual SHL History Week Contest.

I plan to do an edition every season

This will essentially be a SHL History writing contest.

Hit me up if you can come up with a snazzier name.

What's in it for us?

Cold hard cash

I got a pile o' money and I don't plan on recreating.

Prizes up for grabs:
Best in Show - $1M per entrant (Currently at $9M)
Best of the SHL - $1M per entrant (Currently at $4M)
Best of the SMJHL - $1M per entrant (Currently at $5M)
Best of the IIHF - $1M per entrant (Currently at $1M)
Best of the rest (miscellaneous) - $1M per entrant (Currently at $2M)
People's Choice - $1M per entrant (Currently at $9M)

Awards and amounts subject to change, as anyone who'd like to add an award and throw in their own money to the pool, hit me up!

I will update this as the contest week progresses to reflect the amounts due to entrants joining as well.

How do I enter?

Easy: just PM or tag me on the site or on Discord with a link to your entry, so I know it's official.

It can be something you've already written, or it can be something new.

If you're wondering what we're looking for, Here's a link to the History Book.

In short, you can write whatever you want.

It can be first-person, or third-person.
It can be an account, or a report.
It can be an overview, or a brief.
It can be in-character, or out-of-character.
Yes, it can be about on-site topics as well.

Everything from a site retrospective to a Players' Tribune-type first person account.

Everything is welcome

What else should I know?

If you'd like to be a judge, hit me up:

Current Judges:
artermis
efiug
hhh81

Right now all awards will be decided by judge ballots, save for People's Choice, which will be by on-site poll.

The best and most impactful entries deemed by the judges will be added to the SHL History Book.

The Deadline is June 21st at 9PM Eastern

Good luck and have fun!

Also it occurred to me I'm in dire need of judges since I shouldn't judge a contest which has submissions of my own Laughing

@artermis

Yeah I mean... You don't have to enter all my entries... I just threw some out there.

Perhaps you should limit how many entries per user/player.

Or cap how much one user can win!!

LOL... this wasn't my idea I was just participating or joining the party you created  Cheers

After the abuse, it all finally ended in a constructive atmosphere in which mutual respect prevailed. "For a male chauvinist, he did a lot of good for us " said Rosie Casals finally. "We'll always remember him in the best possible way. I always said he did the most for women's tennis." Later, in 1993, King said. "At the time, the feminist movement was at its height. The battle of the sexes  helped a lot of people realize that everyone can have skills whether you are a man or woman!". Needless to say, King and Riggs always remained the best of friends.

I don't want there to be a cap to be fair, since I turned it the prizes down on a per user basis instead of entry.

Limiting prizes might need to happen though since I only have so much cash Laughing
