DID I EVER TELL YOU YOU’RE MY HERO?
While your grandpa or your great-uncle Irv probably don’t have a shot at being Time‘s Man of the Year, they can be honored as a “Family Hero” over at competing Newsweek. The newsweekly is spinning off its popular “My Turn” column into a “My Turn: Family Heroes” Web site that invites readers to submit tributes to “the most influential person in your family from the 20th century.”
To honor your own family’s hero, just submit a 500-word essay and photo for screening by Newsweek’s editors. Accepted entries will be posted on the site as a personalized page, complete with its own Web address. The best submissions will be spotlighted weekly on Newsweek’s Web site, <www.newsweek.com>, and two will be published in the magazine in December.
For more information, see <myturn.newsweek.com>. Entries will be accepted only through Dec. 31.
