Luna's Story: A Summer Writing Contest

Gumbo Limbo's Sea Turtle Ambassador Luna!

Every year, she comes back to the beach where she hatched to visit her friends here at Gumbo Limbo.  However, this year she had to get creative with her time during quarantine, and she wants to hear what you think she's been up to!

So Gumbo Limbo Nature Center is hosting a story writing contest!  We want to hear your stories about Luna and her adventures.  Prizes for the top winner in each age category: 6-8 years, 9-11 years, and 12-15 years.  

  • Story submissions and applications are due by 8:00 pm on August 29
  • Winners will be announced on our Facebook page on September 15, and a recorded reading of the winning stories will be shared by one of our Boca Raton librarians.

Please fill out an application and email it with your story to
