Submit Your Moments of Awesomeness

National Moments of Awesomeness contests and submissions

Moments of Awesomeness -

During the month of August, we want to celebrate the best moments of our lives. Whether it's a wedding engagement, college acceptance, or just something awesome that you did with your friends, we want to hear about your one Moment of Awesomeness.

This month, our national writing contest, Twitter contest, and Photo contest will all be themed around sharing your best moments in life. But, we want to make Moments of Awesomeness more than that...

At the end of the month, we are going to compile a video of all of Stage of Life members' most awesome moments. We will take all of the best essay quotes, Twitter entries, photo entries, and video submissions to create the ultimate Moments of Awesomeness montage. There are a few ways to submit your Moment of Awesomeness...
