Culture Story Contest 2017

Happy New Year! Meadowlark Hills is kicking off 2017 with the annual Culture Story Contest beginning on Jan. 9. The purpose of this contest is to gather resident, family, staff and stakeholder’s stories that speak to the uniqueness of Meadowlark Hills and how person-directed care has changed their thoughts on what it means to age. 

There will be two categories: staff and non-staff. For each category, there will be three cash prizes awarded to the top three stories: $500 (first), $250 (second) and $100 (third). Story submissions will be due by 5 p.m. Friday, Feb. 17, and must be submitted with a completed entry form. Winners will be announced at the March Town Meeting on Monday, March 6, and printed in the March 9 edition of the Meadowlark Messenger. 

Entry forms and topic packets are available at the Hospitality Desk, Human Resources office or by clicking the link below. If you have questions regarding the contest, please call (785) 323-3860. All submissions can be dropped off to the Community Relations office (between the KSU Classroom and the CEO office) or via e-mail at
