One Book Contest: Don't Let the Circle Close

What would you do without Internet for a day?

Don't just ask yourself the question -- experiment! For science! And for the chance to win some fantastic prizes.

The One Book Program is holding its first contest of the semester, and we want to see your work. The rules are simple: go without Internet for 24 hours (except for course-related work -- no one needs to tempt the Blackboard gods to further malice) and tell us about it. Was it fun? Awful? Did it free you up to do other things? Fill you with existential angst? Did your Tumblr followers assume you were dead? Let us know. The theme is "breaking the circle," and how you interpret it is up to you.

Best of all, you can express yourself through a variety of mediums. We accept the following:

Acceptable Mediums Size Requirements/Limits Acceptable File Type
Painting No larger than 20”x24” canvas/paper Original work
Drawing No larger than 20”x24” paper Original work
Essay 750 words, must include a title and be double spaced .doc; .docx; .rtf; .pdf
Poem 50 line maximum .doc; .docx; .rtf; .pdf
Photo No larger than 8x10 .jpeg; .png
Music No longer than 4 minutes .mp3

Check out what you can win:

1st – a free 3-credit class
2nd – a Kindle Fire reader
3rd – a $150 gift certificate to the PVCC Bookstore

Email your electronic works to and drop off original work -- paintings and drawings -- at the library front desk by November 4, 2016.

Good luck!
