I got an interesting press release about an essay contest that may interest some of you. Many of you said that you prefer these to be edited so here it is:

Surf and swim apparel designer Girls4Sport will honor inspiring women with its “Ordinary Heroes” essay contest. Girls4Sport invites participants to nominate the women in their lives — mothers, daughters, sisters, and friends — who have accomplished extraordinary things or inspired others dream bigger and better. The contest entry deadline is August 30, 2009.

Girls4Sport will select three hero stories as grand prize winners. The grand prize winners and their heroes will each receive a $100 gift certificate for Girls4Sport’s online store plus an autographed copy of Dara Torres' new book, Age is Just a Number. Ten runners up will each receive a free t-shirt and grab bag from the online store.

Winners and their winning stories will appear on the Girls4Sport website in September 2009. The deadline for nomination is August 30, 2009 at 5:00 p.m. PST. All participants in the contest will receive a 35% off coupon code good towards any purchase from the online store. Participants may nominate as many heroes as they want. To nominate a hero, visit the website.
