The contest is free to enter and one of our judges will be our English teacher. She has her Master’s degree and is National Board Certified. I am the creative judge, looking at the work from a totally creative stand point. And our third judge will be some one with an interest in our subject; i.e. February judge needs to be a politician or someone holding an elected government position. I will always try to keep the contests as fair as possible.
Remember a one page essay is usually 600 – 800 words. Grammar, punctuation, and spelling are always considered when judging a written work. Read over your work to check for errors and also to see if it makes sense to you.
