The Room of Requirement has always had different uses throughout the Harry Potter series, from a training room for Dumbledore's Army to a room full of chamber pots for Professor Dumbledore. For our September contest, Leaky is asking how would you, as a Hogwarts student, utilize the room's enchantments to your benefit?

To enter the contest, describe how you would use the Room of Requirement including the who, what, how and when aspects. Be thorough in your description covering all the loopholes and requirements to make it work! Entries must be no more than 50 words in length and should be sent to contests@the-leaky-cauldron.org with "Room of Requirement uses" in the subject line.

Readers 13 years of age and over may enter the contest, including staff members not involved in the judging process. The first place winner will receive a handcrafted wand from Wizard Wood Wands, a copy of the book The Practitioners Guide to Wand Magic by William C. Wilson, and 200 MyLeaky points. Second, third, and honorable mentions will receive 150, 100, and 50 MyLeaky points, respectively.

For complete details, please visit the contest page. You have until September 30th at 11:59 pm (EDT) to enter. Good luck!

ALWAYS wanted a dry ski slope! That would be amazing, with perfect ski equipment provided and something to help cushion awkward falls. Unfortunately can’t get any apres ski because of Gamp’s Third Law of Transfiguration or whatever it’s called!

Just to clarify, we are not looking for a story, just a short description. Something like “Training room for Dumbledore’s Army. Would have lots of space, pillows and useful books.” (but then something that’s not actually in the books) You are just telling us your idea. Be creative!

As for the winners of the previous contest: Once we close the contest, we all have to have time to read through all the entries and pick our favorites and sometimes deal with tie breakers. It’s USUALLY within a week of the contest, but can take longer.

How creative can we be in only 50 words? That’s nothing. I find these short word limits on the contests really frustrating to my imagination.
