Kraemer IG Story Contest


Everyone has a story to tell!

The Kraemer Intergenerational Story Contest, powered by Pass it Down, is an outgrowth of a contest started by the organization Intergeneration Month and its founder, Sandy Kraemer. In early 2017, Bridges Together “merged” with IG Month, and we are proud to be continuing the efforts of Sandy and the organization he founded. (Click here to read last year’s prize-winning entries!)

  • The written word (i.e. story, poem, memoir)
  • Video (i.e. story, song dance)
  • Visual art (i.e. quilt, painting, pottery)
