AWAI Writing Challenge:
Tell Me About a Speaker Who Motivated You
Did you ever listen to a speaker that really touched you? Inspired you, and motivated you to take action and change your life?
It could be a famous speech, like "I Have a Dream" by Martin Luther King, Jr. that moved you. Or maybe it was a high school coach who gave a rousing half-time speech you'll never forget. Maybe it was a particular speaker at a conference, whose presentation connected with you at the right place and time, and motivated you to change course in your life or make a big decision.
Tell me about a speaker who motivated you, and a decision or action you took as a result.
Send your 1,000 word (or less) essay to me at firstname.lastname@example.org with "A speaker who motivated me" in the subject line. Please include your name on the document itself, not just in the email you send me. If your name is not included on the document it will be disqualified.
One winner will be selected from all entries received. If it's you, you'll receive a $100 American Express gift card and have your essay published on the AWAI website.
All entrants will be recognized and will be sent a special gift for participating.
Deadline: Sunday May 23, 2010
Look for the winning entry in the May 28 issue of Inside AWAI.
