DON’T JUDGE A GIRL BY HER COVER

DON’T JUDGE A GIRL BY HER COVER Contest

To Enter:Write an essay on the topic, “What it means to be a real Gallagher Girl.”Please email your essay to: AllyCarterContest@gmail.com on or before April 30, 2009.

Your essay can be no longer than 250 words. Essays may be shorter than 250 words, but essays over this length will not be considered.

Essays will be judged both on what you say and how you say it, so be sure and spell-check, proofread and turn in an essay that would make a Gallagher Girl proud!

A parent, guardian, or teacher may assist, but you must write the essay yourself.

Entries must be included in the body of the email — no attachments, please. Emails that contain attachments will be deleted immediately and will not be considered.

The subject line of your email should read: GG3 ARC contest.

You may only submit ONE entry, so make it a good one.

Along with your essay, include the following information:

 

  • Your Name

  • Your age (if under 18)

  • A complete mailing address where any prizes you might receive should be mailed (this could be home, school, your parent’s work address, etc.—please note to whose attention the package should be addressed)

  • Your preferred t-shirt size

  • Your email address

Unfortunately, due to the cost and difficulty of shipping overseas, the contest will be limited to people in the U.S. and Canada.If you’ve read and understood these rules and feel up to a challenge, then start writing!The first place winner will receive a signed Advance Reading Copy (ARC) of DON’T JUDGE A GIRL BY HER COVER and a Gallagher Girls t-shirt. The winning entry will be posted on AllyCarter.com!

Second place will receive a “playaway” version of the CROSS MY HEART AND HOPE TO SPY

audiobook from Brilliance Audio for your school library and a Gallagher Girls t-shirt for you! (A “playaway” is like a mini ipod that has an audiobook automatically loaded on it.)
Winners will be notified via email on or before May 8, 2009.

Winners will be announced on AllyCarter.com on May 9, 2009—exactly one month before DON’T JUDGE A GIRL BY HER COVER will be in stores everywhere.

Thanks, and good luck!

Ally
