Archives contest

Share your story with us —
and WIN a prize!

Have you discovered something special at SD State Archives that’s made a difference in your personal or professional life? Share your story with us during our “I Found It In The Archives” contest, and you could win a prize.

You might have unearthed a clue in an unsolved mystery… discovered a long-lost relative… found the missing element in a critical paper trail… or simply had an outstanding experience working with archives staff while learning more about something important to you. Whatever your “I Found It In The Archives” story may be, we want to hear it!

To enter, simply describe your experience in an essay (400 words or fewer) or in a video (2 minutes or less).  It's as easy as that! Your entry will be judged by our panel, and our winner will then be entered in the Society of American Archivists' national contest.  So don't delay--the "I Found It In The Archives" contest entry deadline is coming soon!

Entry Deadline: January 31 , 2012 at close of business
