The days are getting shorter. The leaves are beginning to change colors. The high school football team is in last place. It’s time to experience an adolescent rite of passage: Homecoming.
In 400 words or fewer, write a story about homecoming. It can be about the dance, the football game, spirit week, whatever you like! The entry period closes on Wednesday, October 2 at 11:59 p.m. ET. This contest is open to all Figs.
