Colleen Anne Longhurst, contest entries...
(Click on most images to enlarge.)
When annual fairs and get-togethers were the main entertainment in small communities, contests in everything were popular. Colleen enjoyed discussing her interests with her like-minded peers and actively sought them out. She enjoyed showing her work and entering contests for things like crafts, baking and photography.
Colleen was also very interested in being recognized for her creative writing, and entered many contests. Although I have been unable to find a winning entry in her effects, she was a contributor to numerous newsletters and voluntarily published articles in some of the local newspapers. Her work was good enough to eventually earn her an offer of payment for articles submitted - so much per word and/or photograph. She was very excited about this, and there was a least one recorded payment for her work.
Here are pages from a scrapbook Colleen kept with details and awards for Colleen's handiwork and photography.
