In 2017 Old World Wisconsin will celebrate the 150th birthday of Wisconsin native Laura Ingalls Wilder. "Little House in the Big Woods" has inspired millions of people around the world to learn more about Wisconsin, history and Laura's adventures since it was first published in 1932. Now it's your turn to be a part of Laura's story by participating in "Little House Big Story." The "Little House Big Story" contest asks people from all over the nation to submit their own story of how Laura Ingalls Wilder inspired them to learn more about Wisconsin, history, or their own family stories. You can write a story or a poem, paint a picture, dance or even put on a play...be creative and have fun! Old World Wisconsin will select finalists from each category (youth and adult) and on July 22, 2017 a panel of expert judges will select 1 winner from each category as part of our World of Little House event. Do you have a Big Story to share? We'd love to hear it. Good Luck! Go to the Old World Wisconsin web site for entry information.
