Contest will run September 11 through November 28, 2013.

We are looking for an article about a place you are grateful for or a memorable holiday that you shared with a special loved one or a place that is awe inspiring.

In Jonah Berger’s book, Contagious: Why Things Catch On he wrote about awe:

Awe is the sense of wonder and amazement that occurs when someone is inspired by great knowledge, beauty, sublimity, or might. It’s the experience of confronting something greater than yourself. Awe encompasses admiration and inspiration and can be evoked by everything from great works of art or music to religious transformations, from breathtaking natural landscapes to human feats of daring and discovery.

Sometimes the place that makes you feel gratitude is in your own backyard, share your special location.
