    I'm not sure I'm keen on these bits:
    All contest entries may be considered for eventual Tribune publication pending notification of the author.

    By entering this contest, contestants agree to allow use of their name, voice, photograph, likeness, any information provided on entry form in any medium of communication, including but not limited to print, Internet, radio and/or television and for any purpose, including advertising, promotional or other purposes, by the sponsor and its licensees and affiliates, without additional compensation.
    It sounds great if you win, but if you don't, your story might get published anyhow for no compensation. Plus, they can sell your personal info to spammers.
