Everyone wants to hear about how world schooling is seen through the eyes of the children themselves. What are they learning? How are they learning?
So, we are going to host essay contests!!! The topics will vary and will be announced on the site and via email. Obviously this is going to be easier for the older children as their language and writing skills are more developed, but anyone 18 and under is welcome to submit an essay. Please submit your articles to: Ourworldschools@gmail.com with “Essay Contest” in the subject line.
Please read the Terms and Conditions, but the main take home point is that we will have the rights to the essays and photos with the intention of publishing the runners up and the winners on our page to share with our audience. Essays will be judged on content as well as structure, but we encourage all levels of writers to participate as you each have something wonderful and unique to add! The contest host reserves the right to be the final judge of the winner of the PRIZES!!
That’s right, you read that right, we’re offering cash prizes in the form of Amazon gift cards!!
1st place = $50
2nd place = $25
3rd place = $10
This contest was designed to encourage education all the way around. The writers get a chance to write for an audience and share their stories, the readers get a chance to see the world through the children’s eyes. What an opportunity all the way around!!!
One final caveat. In order to keep offering prizes, please help us by sponsoring our site. Any donation is totally appreciated and will be applied to the site and/or contests.
