The scary season has arrived – and the Press-Telegram wants to be spooked.

The newspaper is again launching its popular Scary Stories contest for Long Beach area youth. Winning entries – both stories and artwork – will be published in the Press-Telegram on Halloween, Oct. 31.

The rules are the same as last year: there will be three age categories for stories and drawings: Elementary school (K-5), middle school (grades 6-8), and high school (grades 9-12).

Here are the rules:

• The deadline is Oct. 24.
• All entries must be emailed, with the subject line “Scary Stories,” to: ptnews@presstelegram. Stories can be submitted in the body of the email, or as a Word attachment; drawings should be submitted in JPEG format, no larger than 5MG in size.
• Stories must be no longer than 650 words.
• Artwork must be original (no tracings)
• Entries will be judged based on imagination, creativity and theme.
• The winning entries will be published in the Press-Telegram on Oct. 31, and posted online.

If you have any questions, e-mail Press-Telegram City Editor Melissa Evans at mevans@scng.com or call 562-499-1280.


This year marks the eighth anniversary of the Long Beach College Promise.  The Long Beach Unified School District is asking all middle school students and parents to take the College Promise pledge.  Learn more and take the pledge online at www.lbschools.net/Departments/Success_Initiative/cp_ms_pledge.cfm.
