The applicants with the highest scores will move on to the final round of the scholarship competition where a winner will be chosen by a team from HelpTeaching.com. The stories from finalists will be published on HelpTeaching.com with attribution.

If chosen for publication on the site, HelpTeaching.com contributors will develop their own questions to accompany the text.

Scholarship Tips

When submitting an entry, consider the following:

  • Avoid standard college admission essays (including pieces written for Common App) or essays previously written for class
  • Think outside of the box and come up with a unique way to present a subject
  • Avoid fairy tales and animal fables (we receive tons of these and it's hard to stand out among them)
  • Try not to start with Once Upon a Time
  • Consider the age level the piece appeals to and ensure content and language is appropriate for the level
  • Avoid highly controversial topics unless presenting a balanced viewpoint
  • Watch your grammar and punctuation
