The City of Prattville Presents an Essay Writing Contest
This contest is open to all public, private, and homeschool students in Autauga County in grades 9 through 12. The deadline for submissions is February 24, 2017.
If you are a student in Autauga County who does not reside in the City of Prattville, you may write about how the Arts play a part in your own community.
Award ribbons will be given to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in each grade at a special awards ceremony on March 10 at the Way Off Broadway Theatre. The Grand Prize winner will receive an award ribbon and their name and photograph will be included in an upcoming issue of Potential magazine. All winners will be given the opportunity to present an excerpt of their essay on stage at the Fountain City Arts Festival on April 1, 2017.
Rules are listed on the flyer. Please do not include your name or other identifying information on any sheet other than the cover sheet. Your essay should include a header with the title and page numbers only.
Essays will be judged based on a rubric with the following criteria: ideas and relevance to the theme, organization, voice, and conventions.
Winners will be notified by email to attend the awards ceremony, so please provide an email address that you check often.
Submissions received after midnight on February 24, 2017 will not be accepted.
