Crowder College begins annual Literature, Photography and Art Scholarship Contest, where 120 entries will be featured in the Crowder Quill magazine – KSNF/KODE –

NEOSHO, Mo. — In tonight’s “Dose of Good News” — a good chance for some of you to get published in a local literary art magazine.
Crowder College is hosting its 41st annual “Literature, Photography and Art Scholarship Contest.” 120 entries will be published in the “Crowder Quill” magazine next spring.
Crowder and high school students along with members of the community can enter into one of eight categories to win a $500 scholarship.
“One thing we’d like to do with the Quill is to encourage aspiring writers and artists, and literally there have been people who have gotten their start in writing novels in art and photography by being published by being encouraged by that by saying oh my work is good and I should do more of it,” said Latonia Bailey, Journalism Program Coordinator.
Anyone living within 100 miles of any Crowder College campus can enter.
Entries can be made online. Guidelines and more information can be found here.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The U.S. Interior Department on Wednesday will auction vast oil and gas reserves in the Gulf of Mexico estimated to hold up to 1.1 billion barrels of crude, the first such sale under President Joe Biden and a harbinger of the challenges he faces to reach climate goals that depend on deep cuts in fossil fuel emissions.
The livestreamed sale invited energy companies to bid on drilling leases across some 136,000 square miles (352,000 square kilometers) — about twice the area of Florida.
NEW YORK (AP) — The CEO of Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange, doesn’t try to explain why some cryptocurrencies that started purely as a joke have surged so much in price.
He also doesn’t want to say if the exuberance for meme coins like Dogecoin is an indication of a dangerous bubble. But Changpeng Zhao, who goes by “CZ,” does say that it shows the power of decentralization, which has underpinned the huge growth for crypto.
NEW YORK (AP) — The cryptocurrency market gets likened to the Wild West by critics, and now a key player is asking for sheriffs to come to town.
Binance, the world’s largest exchange for trading Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, says it’s time for global regulators to establish rules for crypto markets. It released a list of “10 fundamental rights for crypto users” this week that it wants to guide discussions with regulators, policymakers and other exchanges.
