Weekly Cash Prize winners

A prize from The Ablow Center is awarded to the student who writes 500 words judged to have the greatest potential to make others think more positively about themselves or the world around them.

Dr. Keith Ablow has published 15 novels, true crime and self-help books with major publishers, collectively selling millions of copies.  Two of his books were New York Times bestsellers.  To encourage other writers, Dr. Ablow’s new website will host a weekly writing contest.  Contestants must submit a maximum of 500 words that show insight into, or engagement with, the world around them.  A cash prize of $50.00 is awarded to the winner, along with a virtual certificate of recognition. The writer has to post something inspirational or positive about any one of the following topics:

Police, veterans, religion or spirituality, reflections on a newspaper article from the Boston Globe or Boston Herald (please include a link to the article), the benefits of counseling and life coaching, gun rights, the judicial system (courts, judges and the jury system) or personal autonomy.

The first 25 entries each week will be reviewed, with $50.00 awarded to the winner, along with a virtual certificate which the winner is free to post to social media.  Each winner will be recognized on Keith Ablow’s website and eligible for an annual grand prize of $1,000.00.
