Show Me the Errors

Show Me the Errors invites readers to join the editing staff of and have an opportunity to win prizes. In this contest, readers will earn points for every error they find in online content at – whether that be a subject-verb agreement mistake, a misspelling or an erroneous pronoun usage. If you are an exceptionally eagle-eyed reader who wants to generously point out more than one error per story, that’s great. But only one point will be awarded per person for each submitted online entry.

Every month, the names of all participants will be entered into a drawing – one entry for each submission to the contest, and one name will be drawn from the pool to select the winner. The winner will receive a Missourian T-shirt and a copy of "The Great Typo Hunt: Two Friends Changing the World, One Correction at a Time" by Jeff Deck and Benjamin D. Herson.

The contest is for factual errors only, not opinions or comments. If you want to submit a comment, please return to the story and follow the directions there.

Please be civil and refrain from profanities and name-calling; in other words, don't say anything you wouldn't otherwise say in public.

The Show Me the Errors contest is not open to Missourian employees.
