Father's Day tribute contest open

The Islander invites readers - children and adults - to participate in its Father’s Day tribute contest.

Tell, in 500 words or less, your favorite story about your dad.

The Islander staff will chose three stories to publish June 17, and those writers also will receive Islander gift bags.

Stories will be judged on appeal, uniqueness and the age-appropriate quality of writing.

Entries must be received by noon Thursday, June 11.

Send entries to the newspaper via mail at 5404 Marina Drive, Holmes Beach, FL 34217; via fax at 866-362-9821 or via e-mail to
