Announcing the ArmyStudyGuide Military Blogger Contest

Are you or a relative a current or former member of the military? Do you like writing about your experience with the military? Have you benefited from the financial or education benefits the military provides? If so, enter the ArmyStudyGuide Military Blogger Contest for a chance to win up to $1,000.

This contest is open to current and former members of all branches of the military–not just the Army–and their immediate families.

Competition Details

Using the entry form, submit a blog post that discusses how you and/or your family have benefited from a military program like the GI Bill, MyCAA, Tuition Assistance, college scholarships, home loans, or any other benefits program. Your entry can be a blog post you have already written or a brand new blog post created specifically for the contest. You don’t have to be a blogger and your entry does not have to be published to enter.

The submission deadline is April 18th, 2010. Three finalists from each of the three categories (Veterans, Active Duty, Military Families) will be selected for a run off.

  • The finalists will be announced on April 26th, 2010 and will compete in the run-off until May 10th, 2010.
  • Three category winners and one grand prize winner will be announced here on May 17th.

Winners will be chosen by a panel of judges who will consider content, relevance to the topic, visitor ratings, and traffic generated by your entry. The grand prize winner will receive $1,000 and each category winner will receive $250. Additionally, winning entries will be featured on our blog, and their authors may be considered for paid blogger positions on,,, or another military Web site.
