About this challenge

We’re taking a little break from fiction challenges for a few weeks (but don’t worry, fiction will return soon enough…). In the meantime, we want to continue the theme of: You!

So far, you've told us what you do and why it matters for the A Day in the Life Challenge. You've told us what "home" means to you in the Homecoming Challenge. Now, we have a new Challenge, and we're calling it the Inside Jokes Challenge.

For this Challenge, we want you to tell us a funny, TRUE story involving one or more of your childhood friends. We all have shenanigans from our past that make for excellent storytelling—share one of those memories with us. Late nights, street fights, crazy heights, stage frights—anything and everything is fair game as long as the story includes you and a friend (imaginary friends count too). Tell us a story; we can't wait to learn some more about you. :)

How to enter

For your story to be eligible, it must be between 600 and 5,000 words and adhere to our Community Guidelines. Stories published on Vocal and entered into the contest up until September 21, 2021, at 11:59 PM EST will be entered for consideration. Official Rules for the Challenge can be found here.

The Inside Jokes Challenge is exclusive to Vocal+ members. To learn more and upgrade to Vocal+ visit https://vocal.media/vocal-plus.

To be eligible to win the grand prize, second place, or third place prizes, you must be over the age of 13 and residing in a country where Stripe is available at the time of entry.
