MyBookbuyer.com is sponsoring a scholarship essay contest. It is a 750-1,250 word essay submission, and the awards that are offered this semester are one grand prize of $1,250 and one runner-up prize of $250, to the winning students. This essay contest is offered twice every calendar year, once in the Spring and once in the Fall.
Spring 2013 Essay Topic: Your topic is to select one fictional or non-fictional character whom you have read in the past, who has had a strong and positive impact to help shape who you are today. This character may be chosen from a contemporary fictional work, a modern creative work (ie. poetry), or may span past historical classics or plays (ie. Shakespeare). You must be sure to describe, in depth, some of the characteristics this individual exhibits and how they relate to who you are and how they have impacted you. For example, were these traits something you closely related to? It’s imperative that you give very specific examples on how you were affected. You may elect to use some selected text from the readings for support, however, the majority of your essay should be your own personal analysis and reflection. In other words, this essay should not be a book report.
Deadline: December 10, 2013
