Yes, you can send in your wonderful stories to Highlights Magazine whenever you like. But wouldn’t you like to send in your story and win big bucks, too?
I’m all about winning the big bucks. So, I send something into this contest every year. So far, the $1,000 has eluded me. But this could be the year.
