Notes from the Webcast:
- You may only enter the essay contest if you live in a group home, juvenile detention center, or with a foster family; or if you used to be in foster care. (Represent is a magazine written by and for young people in foster care.)
- All essays must be true stories written by you. This is a non-fiction essay contest; fictional entries or plagiarized entries will be disqualified and you will not be allowed to enter our contest again.
- If you win, your story will be published on our website and in our print issue. Tell us if you want your story to be printed anonymously—but you should still type in your full name and complete address so we know where to mail your check if you win.
