MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont writers are being urged to submit entries for the Vermont Writers’ Prize.

The prize was created in honor of Ralph Nading Hill, Jr., a writer and historian who published numerous books and magazine articles about the state.

The prize is considered by many to be one of the state’s premier literary honors. The winner will also receive a $1,500 prize.

The contest is open to all Vermonters, including seasonal residents and students enrolled in Vermont colleges.

Submissions should be essays, short stories or poems on the theme of “Vermont—Its People, the Place, Its History or Its Values.” Entries must be unpublished and less than 1,500 words.

Details on how to submit entries can be found on the websites of Green Mountain Power and Vermont Magazine, sponsors of the contest.
