Southern Maryland Best Buys


ActiveRain Contests Archive

Ask and YE Shall Receive! I wanted this in one easy place to scour the past contests to read and reread the entries. I'll remember something someone wrote and want to reread it. Or, I 'll forget which ideas surfaced for the top prize. Now it is nice and easy to find the Active Rain Contest Entries. Thanks, Kerrie! You are the BEST!

I've begun compiling past contests in one easy spot for you to find any information you're looking for.  This post will be updated each month when new contests are added.

We're always looking for new ideas and moderators to host.  If you have an idea for a contest, please get in touch with Kerrie to talk more about it.
