The winning song will be part of the 2011 Rail Fest celebration.
The $100 prize for the contest is offered by Lucille Frey—singer, songwriter and activist for women’s rights. A talented guitar, banjo and harmonica player, she never worked on the railroad but admires the courage of the women who do, especially those who opened
the door for others by being the first in what for many years was considered a man’s field.
