My Gettysburg Address Contest Rules and Regulations

This year, we are celebrating the 155th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address. On Nov. 19, 1863, Abraham Lincoln delivered 272 words that not only helped dedicate Gettysburg’s Soldiers’ National Cemetery, his words gave a sense of hope and re-unification to a town, and nation, that had been raged by war. His words, 155 years later, still resonate. In the spirit of the anniversary, we want to know – what do the words of the Gettysburg Address mean to you? What positive meaning can we draw from these words that is relevant to today? 

How do I enter?

In four sentences or less, let us know what the Gettysburg Address means to you. Feel free to include a personal photo to accompany your entry. Submit your entry here. Contest ends November 9.

What do I win?

At the close of the contest on November 9, ten entries will be chosen to be featured in an upcoming blog. All participants will receive a small gift via mail with the address provided in your submission.

General Disclaimer: Submitting an entry or picture does not guarantee you will be featured in the blog.
