Level 4

Hello everyone, Thanks for responding to my post! Mike: Yes, this is for all ANA members. It will be judged by a few ANA employees in the Museum and Education departments. The subject can be anything that ties in with the theme of unity, togetherness, building bridges, etc. Entries can focus on a particular coin design or issue throughout history, or a general piece about numismatics creating unity through club meetings, open houses, National Coin Week, coin shows/conventions, etc. CoinLady: Yes, professionals can certainly enter.


Level 6

I'd be happy if more people wrote a blog or comment om one here... Thanks for the info..

Great theme. Can professional writers enter?


Level 6

I agree with Mike. We need a bit more information please. Sounds like a fun idea!


Level 7

This is for everyone? Who judges? Are you talking blogs with pictures? Just a little bit more information. Does it have to be new or an old one you think is good?
