As part of this year’s Common Reader program, Colorado Mountain College students and members of the public are invited to submit entries to an art and creative-writing contest sponsored by the college.

All entries must be inspired by this year’s Common Reader book, Mishna Wolff’s memoir, “I’m Down.” The theme of the contest is “Beyond Cultural Identity: Overcoming Obstacles and Making Connections.”

Six winners will be selected — three in the creative-writing category and three in the art category. Cash prizes will be awarded in each category: $250 for first prize, $150 for second prize and $100 for third. The winning entries will be published on the Common Reader Web page and also will be submitted for possible inclusion in the 2014 issue of Rocky Mountain Reflections, CMC’s arts and literary journal.

The deadline for submissions is Nov. 29. Copies of the book are available at local libraries and bookstores. The public also can attend Wolff’s talks at CMC campuses through Oct. 28.
