"Goodbye for Now" Contest 2022

Sending her off to college is one of life's bittersweet moments. You're proud. You're excited. A bit worried. And whether it's her freshman year or a "victory lap" -- there's a little hole in your heart not easily covered up by a tailgate party or parents' weekend visit.

So -- we created a little giveaway contest to celebrate the sweet parts of this chapter and chase away the blue parts.

We want to hear your "goodbye for now" college story. And we're giving away jewelry to at least three people who share what it looks like for you. Just take a minute to tell us how you're managing a season filled with triumphs, tears, and drop-offs.

We have lined up a panel of Dot & Dash parents to read, laugh, and cry over these entries and pick our winners.

(Submissions must be received by 09/11/2022. Limit one nomination per person. Winners will be notified by email and can choose any necklace, bracelet or earrings as their prize. By submitting a story and photos, you are providing permission for publication use if your entry is selected.)
