The challenge of this Facebook contest is to convey a clear message using a few well chosen words in this nod to Hemingway. With a limit of 160 characters, simply tell Levenger a story with a straightforward, no-frills sentence just as Hemingway had done in the very first line of The Old Man and the Sea:
He was an old man who fished alone in a skiff in the Gulf Stream and he had gone eighty-four days no without taking a fish.
By getting to the point like Hemingway, participants could win a Stanley Leather Journal worth $70. For those up to the challenge that pays homage to the iconic Pulitzer Prize novelist Ernest Hemingway, post your text message story on Levenger’s Facebook page at http://www.Facebook.com/Levenger and “Like” the page for your chance to win. Winners will be announced on Monday, July 23rd, 2012.
