The first annual Kick Ass Oregon History Diorama Contest has begun.
Dioramas! Die-Oh-Ram-Ahs! Those awesome little cardboard boxes detailed with globs of glue and faded construction paper that make history just jump to life!
You made them in Mrs. Dingleberry’s 5th grade American History class. You saw them at that Crappy County Historical Society your Dad drug you to on that one summer road trip. And you envied Suzie Snotgrass’s winning science faire entry of Tranquility Base (bitch!).
Here’s how it works: Create a diorama depicting a Kick Ass Oregon Historical event (check out the podcasts for inspiration), take photos of your masterpiece, and email them to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 15, 2012. The winners will be announced at the Stumptown Stories show at the Jack London Bar (in the basement of the Rialto at 529 SW 4th) on Tuesday, January 17, 2012. Winners will Bask in fame and glory and gain a whole gang of 26 year old stripper girl friends as a result. ANNDD win some prizes!!
