Share what you love about your home! Enter the Our Country Home Contest and you could win $500! Submit at least six photos of your home (high-resolution JPEG files, please) along with a 500-word essay explaining why it’s the best place in the country. Here are the four categories:
1. Gardens: Does your outdoor space become paradise each summer? Show us the power of your green thumb.
2. Interiors: Show us the place you retreat to—perhaps your kitchen, your living room, a cozy bedroom or bath? Is your craft room your happy place? Maybe the potting shed is where you find solace. Wherever it is you go in your home to relax and regroup, we’d love a peek inside.
3. The View: What do you see when you step outside your back door? Is your home surrounded by beautiful country?
4. Farmland: Is your homestead defined by picturesque pastures and rolling acreage? Do you keep a wedding-worthy barn?
The grand prize is $500, but there are more ways to win! The first-, second- and third-prize winners will receive $250, $150 and $100, respectively. The total value of all prizes is $1000.
