Tell us your Story


Personal Essay Contest

We know that every Shriner has a story to tell. The 140th Anniversary of Shriners International is quickly approaching in 2012, and this is the perfect time to reflect on our rich history. We cannot think of a better way to do so than by listening to the voices of the men who have made this organization so well-loved and respected.
We would like you to share your story with us by entering into the Shriners International Personal Essay Contest. This essay should be a story from your life as it relates to being a Shriner. A personal essay gives the reader an intimate glimpse of the author’s experience, observations, thoughts or feelings. The individual stories of our members make up the history of our organization and by preserving them on paper you will help us tell the story of Shriners International.
Both Shriner and non-Shriner affiliated judges will read all submissions anonymously and vote for the top three essays. Winners will receive plaques, pins, and both individual and temple will be acknowledged at the 138th Imperial Session in Charlotte, NC, July 2012, in the presence of their fellow nobles. The top three essays will appear in a commemorative anniversary coffee table book that will also premiere at Session.
