  • The winning entries will be included in the forth-coming Springfield A to Z Alphabet Book 
  • Winners will be announced on August 31, 2021 and receive a free copy of the book 

Who Is Eligible to Enter?

  • There are no age restrictions in this contest. All ages and ability levels are encouraged to enter. Minors under age 18 must have permission of their parent or guardian to enter.

  • All residents of Springfield and the immediately surrounding areas of rural East Lane County are eligible to enter. 

  • Employees of the Springfield Public Library and Springfield History Museum are not eligible to enter the contest.

What is East Rural Lane County?

Springfield and rural East Lane County include the city limits of Springfield (including Thurston and Glenwood), the Marcola area, and the McKenzie River communities stretching east to McKenzie Bridge. These communities were chosen because they reflect the mission scope of the Springfield History Museum, whose mission is in part to promote an appreciation of the diverse communities that call Springfield and rural East Lane County home.
