This spring, Her Campus is teaming up with Pocket for The Future Connection, an exciting new writing contest where you'll have the chance to win a $5,000 cash prize! You'll also have the chance to have your writing officially published in Pocket, the award-winning app from Mozilla that helps you discover and save the best articles, news, and stories from across the web. Living in the digital age can mean something different to everyone, and we want to hear what it means to you. To enter, answer the following prompt in 300-500 words: 'What does it mean for you to come of age in a hyper-online, always-connected world?' Get creative, have fun with it, and don't be afraid to let your personality shine! Visit our contest page to enter The Future Connection writing competition and enter for your chance to win. Be sure to submit your essay by Thursday, July 15th, 2021, by 11:59 p.m. PT for the opportunity to win a $5,000 prize. The winner will be announced on Friday, July 30th, 2021. Essays will be reviewed by a panel of expert judges, including Mozilla CMO Lindsey Shepard and Her Campus Media co-founder, CEO, and Editor-in-Chief Stephanie Kaplan Lewis! The writing contest winner will also have their essay featured in Pocket, where it will go before Pocket's global audience of readers and thinkers who use the app as part of their daily reading ritual! And that's not all. The winner will also gain a personal mentorship call with a Mozilla executive and take home the $5,000 cash prize!
