Who Will Survive?
You are driving along a mountainside back road on the way to your great aunt’s house. you may or may not have gotten lost, depending on what you have convinced yourself of. It’s really hard to tell, in fact, due to the amount of snow on the ground and in the air. You round a corner and approach a stone bridge that has seen better years. The car looses traction and you skid right into the side of the bridge. Your car twists around and you find yourself falling backwards, stuck in the shallow ditch. You get out of the car and climb up the icy embankment and up to the road. You pull out your phone to call for help, but there is no signal. You are approximately 10 miles from your aunt’s house, according to the GPS, and about 20 miles to the nearest town center. Name five items that you should have in your car (if you were prepared) that can help in this type of emergency situation. Give us your reasoning behind each item. Your entry should be no more than 500 words.
How to Play:
Who Will Survive is a writing game that will test you on your emergency preparedness and survival skills. The goal is to see who will survive the scenario the best. Each week, one or more contestants will be eliminated. Those eliminated will be among the bottom of the remaining group. The survival likelihood rating is based on the selection committee’s review of each contestants submission, and the popular votes made by anyone who reads and votes on the contestant’s submission. Submissions are now open! Just email your response to the scenario above to firstname.lastname@example.org. Submissions will be received until January 8th. The Selection Committee will review each contestants submission and choose a number of contestants to be featured in the first round of the game. Once they are chosen, they will be the only participants in the game. If you are not chosen, or are knocked out of the game, you may still vote in the popular vote, which will be in the form of a poll underneath each round’s submission.The committee or the popular voter may rate each contestant based on common sense, knowledge of gear, intelligence in planning, creativity, knowledge in survival skills, or in your demonstration of why you are the best survivalist.
The prize for first place will be a lifestraw.
