April Fool’s Contest!

It’s a contest!  Write a winning article for the Blue Line’s April Fool’s issue and win this finely crafted Blue Line mug, perfect for your favorite hot beverage.

Once a year, the Blue Line editors get foolish and post silly stuff about Boulder.  We had a blast putting together last year’s April Fools issue and want to expand the effort to include our readers.  We think you might be funny!  The possibilities for content are endless.  Feel free to use any of these headlines or make up your own:

  • Downtown coffee shop closes, reopens as slightly more upscale coffee shop
  • Boulder planning staff develops zombie apocalypse preparedness plan
  • City builds first LEED platinum parking lot
  • Severely liberal Boulderites rescue Mitt Romney’s dog

Think of it as a Boulder version of the Onion (the Bunion!).   If you are so inclined, include an original graphic.  We love charts and graphs of all kinds.

So here are the rules:

  • All content must be original, developed by you
  • You must have rights to all images and graphics that you include
  • For this issue only, you may use a pseudonym  (or your real name if you prefer)
  • Each headline must have at least one paragraph of content to accompany it
  • Don’t be mean
  • Entries are due by noon, March 22
  • Submit entries via our Submit an Article page
  • Winning entries will run on April 1, 2012
  • Questions?  Contact us
  • If we post your article, we’ll send or deliver a Blue Line mug to you; or you may pick one up at our next Blue Friday event

We’re looking forward to your entries!
