Press-Telegram Scary Story Contest

The Long Beach Press-Telegram is again launching its popular Scary Stories contest for Long Beach area youth. Winning entries – both stories and artwork – will be published in the Press-Telegram on Halloween, Oct. 31. The rules are the same as last year, with three age categories for stories and drawings:

  • Elementary grades (K-5)
  • Middle grades (6-8)
  • High school grades (9-12)

Here are the rules:

  • The deadline is Monday, Oct. 23.
  • All entries must be emailed, with the entrant’s name and grade, and the subject line “Scary Stories,” to: ptnews@presstelegram.com. Stories can be submitted in the body of the email, or as a Word attachment.  Drawings should be submitted in JPEG format, no larger than 5MG in size.
  • Stories must be no longer than 650 words.
  • Artwork must be original (no tracings).
  • Entries will be judged based on imagination, creativity and theme.
  • The winning entries will be published in the Press-Telegram on Oct. 31, and posted online at www.presstelegram.com/.

If you have any questions, e-mail Press-Telegram City Editor Melissa Evans at mevans@scng.com or call 562-499-1280.
