Everett, WA (PRWEB) September 2, 2007
Universal Tutors LLC, a unique tutoring company based in Everett, Washington that serves students in two nations, is pleased to announce its essay and poem writing contest. Students in grades 4 through 12 who live in the United States and Canada are invited to enter and show off their writing skills.
The contest is now open for entries and will end March 1, 2008. The contest is both challenging and rewarding for students, with three prizes being offered: first prize of $250, second prize of $175 and a third prize of $75.
Students will also have the possibility of getting their writings published in a book. The top essays and poems will be published in Universal Tutors LLC's essays and poems book.
"The contest provides a great avenue for parents and teachers to encourage children to write in a skilled manner," states Mark Wilcox, General Manager of Universal Tutors LLC.
Students can put into practice what they have learned in English and Literature classes, and then anticipate the contest results. Teachers can encourage students to enter by offering other incentives on a local scale, such as a school-sponsored book of poems and essays or special writing prizes.
The essay or poem topic can be chosen by the entrant. Students can express who they are through their writing by selecting a topic that is very important to them. Only one entry will be accepted from each student, and all entries must be received or postmarked on or before the deadline date of March 1, 2008.
Universal Tutors LLC makes it convenient and easy to enter the contest by placing its contest rules, prize information, and a printable application online at the company's Web site.
