Whether or not you’ve ever been to a Homecoming dance, there’s something about this quintessential adolescent experience that lends itself to story telling. Hoping to find a date, picking out the perfect dress, the romance and awkwardness of your first slow dance — there are so many great moments to write about.
Because we love Homecoming so much, we challenged you to write your own story. And write you did. The stories were funny and sweet and awkward and sad. We loved them all. Unfortunately, we could only choose five winners — but today we’re pleased to share the winning stories with you.
