Hey, remember in high school when your school sponsored essay-writing contests to get you excited about something you were totally not excited about and then gave you a lame ass prize that you didn’t want anyway? Well, this is just like that, only NOT AT ALL. Live Derby Girls wants to know why you love roller derby, and we are offering up some sweet prizes to get you tell us about it. You already think about derby all the time, so why not share your love with the world and win some shit? Here are the rules:

3. You must be willing to have your work published on LDG.
