A lot has been written this past year about living with COVID-19, mostly from adults’ point of view. But what do our young people think of it all? We’re offering anyone under 20 to share with us their view on the pandemic by writing a story or poem about it, or drawing or painting a picture that tells us what this past year has been like for you. What stands out? What has affected you most? What will you remember about this when you’re all grown up? 

We’re accepting your stories, poems, paintings and drawings - anything creative really - until June 30, 2021. We’ll publish them online and in upcoming issues of Downhome. Entries will go into a draw for a free one-year subscription to Downhome of your very own (one drawn in May and one in June). At the end, there will be a grand prize draw from all entries for a special gift pack valued at approximately $300!


Grand Prize Pack (valued at approx. $300) includes:
• 12” Carl the Cheeseburger Squishmallow!
• Reversible Moody Octopus, as seen on TikTok!
• Different Strokes Puzzle book by Mel D’Souza, as seen in Downhome magazine
• A Newfoundland colouring book by Dawn Baker
• Puffin Poop and Cod Tongue candies by Downhome
• NL Flag Beach Towel
• 12-Issue Membership to Downhome magazine
• PLUS $150 worth of more surprises
• All packed into a reusable Downhome bag!

Share your pandemic experience with us and get your chance at great prizes!
