Helpful Tip

Save entries throughout the year! To avoid the frantic rush during next year’s contest period, we recommend that you save your potential entries in a special file on your computer, or create a MyScrapbooks page through the BetterBNC website. Then when contest time rolls around, you simply search that file for your best work!
