A writing competition where Coffee takes center stage.
Coffee. Can you imagine police precincts devoid of coffee? Hospitals, Fire Houses, or school teacher lounges void of the hot, caffeine giving liquid? Coffee is a multi-billion dollar a year industry and countless jobs and people count on it. What would happen if suddenly YOU were unable to get your hands on the brew?

You woke up this morning and turned on the t.v. to listen to the news as you prepared for your day. Maybe even as you poured and enjoyed your first cup of coffee. The headlines grab your attention and a chill slithers up your spine.

"The highly aggressive form of the blight that wiped out countless crops in Ireland centuries ago, has mutated and come back. Almost overnight, worldwide coffee plantations have been wiped out. What makes this blight so horrible is not only does it target coffee crops, but it also targets coffee that is stocked up in warehouses and on people's shelves.

Authorities estimate the entire world's supply of coffee will be gone within the week. This will impact businesses and people worldwide and have devastating toll on the world's economy."


Using this scenario, write a story about the effects of living in a world without coffee. Think outside the box. Be creative. You can write in any genre, and there are NO word count limits. Your ONLY guidelines are:

*Right* Use a font 3.5 or larger. If you don't, your story will not get read or judged.
*Right* Technical skills count! Be sure to edit and polish your story.
*Right* Keep it 13+ or under


You will have one month to work on your creation. The deadline for this competition is August 15th.

Prizes: I'm doing something a little different this competition and you're going to get physical prizes!!

First place winner will receive a 2 PC set of WDC Coffee Mugs from the WDC store. I'll even pay the shipping.

Second and third place winners will receive the WDC travel mug from the WDC store and I'll pay the shipping as well.


A very special THANK YOU to a special Anonymous for their kind, generous support. Thanks to them, we will have a brand new coffee merit badge to award this competition to EVERYONE who enters!
