RootsTech-Story@Home Contest

Want some help in learning to tell your family stories? Have you been wanting to preserve the oral histories and family memorabilia sitting around your home? Want to know how to publish those stories and traditions?

Here's your chance -- and a great one at that! A new addition to RootsTech this year is Story@Home who will be offering class sessions with award-winning storytellers, performers, and speakers to help us all explore ways to use the power of story to connect with our families.

Our friends at Story@Home are running an Instagram Photo Contest with a chance to win a $79 value registration to attend the Story@Home plus the Getting Started sessions at RootsTech, March 21-23, 2013, in Salt Lake City, Utah!

The contest will run from February 20th to 24th. To participate, snap a picture you think tells a story. Examples include family, friends, places, events, mementos-anything that has meaning for you. Upload the photo to Instagram and share what the photo tells. Include the hashtags #tellyourstory and #storyathome.

The winner will be chosen by Random.org and announced on the Story@Home Facebook page Monday, February 25th. "Like" Story@Home on Facebook to find out if you've won at Story@Home on Facebook.

Be sure to spread the word and let your friends and family know! See you at RootsTech!
