And no, we won’t publish your name unless you agree to that, as Dave did.
More judge candidates, and event logistics including sponsors, food, beverages,
and the crawl afterwards, when finalists will play at local venues in Cedar Key.

Live Oak, FL, April 2, 2018 — Submissions are now open for the First Annual Suwannee Riverkeeper Songwriting Contest.
Soon there will be more songs about the Suwannee River than the one
everybody knows, and also about the Withlacoochee, the Alapaha, and more; don’t forget the Okefenokee Swamp.
Stephen Foster never saw the Suwannee River, so songwriters don’t have to live here to submit, but they do have
to be present to win.
Submissions must be received by midnight Eastern time at the end of Sunday May, 13, 2018.
The Songwriting Contest Committee will select seven finalists and announce them on Saturday, May 19, 2018.
