Essay Contest

At MAINE SENIORS Magazine we know the value of our seniors and celebrate it every day… although we wanted a special day to honor the contributions of all of Maine’s seniors. This is why our staff worked with our legislature and Governor LePage to create Maine Seniors Day, which is the second Saturday of every September.

This year, we have a special promotion in honor of Maine Seniors Day: the MAINE SENIORS Magazine Essay Contest.

We encourage everyone to consider writing a 200 to 350 word essay on a senior worthy of being a Prime Mover story in MAINE SENIORS Magazine. Do you have a favorite grandparent, aunt, uncle, parent or friend who is senior in your life, whom you believe should be considered a “Prime Mover”?

Please share with us a story about an inspirational senior, someone who exemplifies what it truly means to be “senior partner” in your life, community or workplace. MSM will contact the folks with the top 3 essays for inclusion in future issues of MAINE SENIORS Magazine. Plus, each entry will receive a free subscription to the magazine for a senior of their choice.
