In 50 words or less, tell us why your sweetie’s the best



We are looking for Blount County’s best couple. Or at least the couple that best suits the rules for our new contest.

Now through Feb. 6, The Blount Countian is accepting entries for our Valentine’s Day contest, “In 50 words or less, tell us why your sweetie’s the best.”

Maybe you have a very cute “meet” story or perhaps he (or she) helped you through a particularly tough time in your life. We want to know – and it’s probably a safe bet that other readers would too.

There will be one grand-prize winner, and several smaller prizes will also be awarded. One entry, no entries, or all entries could be printed over the next few weeks. The winner or winners will be announced on the issue of Feb. 11 – just in time for Valentine’s Day on Saturday, Feb. 14.

So, be creative and have fun with this assignment. Tell us your story in poetry or prose. Just remember, it is a Valentine’s Day contest, so the “sweetness” factor means a lot.
