  4. Entries must be typed on 8-1/2? x 11? paper, double-spaced, numbered consecutively, with at least one-inch margins and held together by paper or binder clip, not staples. Photos and illustrations will add to the evaluation. References and a short biography (c. 30 words) should be included. The paper entry must be accompanied by a floppy disk or CD-ROM with the article in Microsoft Word format only.

  7. By submitting the entry, the contestant gives JCHC permission to edit and publish award-winning and other entries in its publication, Historically Jeffco magazine, and on its Web site.
  8. Contestants retain any copyright and may submit to other publications after publication of Historically Jeffco.
  9. All contest rules must be followed explicitly.
Judging:
The contest will be judged by a panel of three qualified judges whose decisions will be final.
