Maryknoll Essay Contest for 2013

The Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers are offering students in grades 6-12 the opportunity to compete in an essay contest for prizes ranging from $150-1,000.

Most of the instructions and rules are as follows:

RULES: Students in grades 6–8 (Division I) and grades 9–12 (Division II) qualify. Entries must be written in English. Only one entry per student. Please specify the division to which the entry is being submitted. Children of Maryknoll employees, Associates and Affiliates are not eligible.
LENGTH: 500–750 words. Pages should be typed and double-spaced or neatly handwritten in ink and stapled. Note: Spelling and grammar count.
DEADLINE: Entries must be postmarked no later than Friday, Nov. 15, 2013. "
