Listen to a Life Contest
Legacy Project
THIS YEAR'S WINNERS WILL BE
ANNOUNCED HERE ON MAY 8
Travel time in the Legacy Project's Listen to a Life Contest

This year's Listen to a Life Contest is closed. Winners will be announced on this webpage by
May 8, 2014.

The next Listen to a Life Contest starts on National Grandparents Day, September 7, 2014.

The Legacy Project and our annual Listen to a Life Essay Contest help you travel time and change lives.

For the contest, travel through time as you interview a grandparent or grandfriend about their life experiences – you may be surprised by what you learn! Then, submit a 300-word story to send a message around the world and into the future. All winning essays become part of the Legacy Project's online Legacy Library, recording life wisdom that can make the world and our future a little bit better.

When you really listen to a life, you have an opportunity to discover timeless insights and ideas. They may be big or small, but they're always valuable. One Grand Prize Timeless Award winner receives a Lenovo ThinkCentre computer – because computers are amazing tools for helping us create, record, and share ideas – and a keepsake timepiece from Expressions of Time.

10 Legacy Award winners also receive a keepsake timepiece from Expressions of Time. And all winners receive a framed award certificate and an autographed copy of Dream, an award-winning bestseller about time, legacies, and dreams across a lifetime.

Find out more below.

The next Listen to a Life Contest starts on National Grandparents Day, September 7, 2014. What can you learn when you listen to a life? You can be part of the BIG picture – the past, present, and future.

Young people become more aware of the lifetime ahead of them, their own dreams and goals, and what's needed to achieve goals and overcome obstacles when they hear the real-life stories of older adults. Listening to a life also develops 21st Century learning skills and builds vital connections across generations.

The Legacy Project's annual Listen to a Life Essay Contest is a meaningful learning and social experience, and an opportunity to have student writing read and recognized by a wider audience. Most importantly, it has heart. In our fast-paced world, it enriches lives – families and communities are brought closer together when you take the time to share stories across generations.

The Legacy Project runs the Listen to a Life Contest each year in partnership with Generations United in Washington, DC.
