We're giving away $1,000 this year to a college student who blogs. Unfortunately, due to a funding shortfall this scholarship is not available this year, however if our fiscal position improves we may reinstate it next year. At College we believe that everyone deserves a shot at a decent education. Not for the least of reasons, because we blog, and the founders of this site make a living as bloggers. As the world gets more competitive, those who are passionate about what they do, and work close to their passions, will be able to become and stay successful even as technology and automation eat away at many business models. Those who are willing to share their experiences with the world help make the world a better place, even if most bloggers only consider blogging a hobby. We believe those who freely express themselves are far more likely to find their true passions and connect with people to bring on large scale social change. We always prefer blogging on your own domain name (because that gives you more flexibility if your blog becomes more than you thought it would be), but there are also many free, quick, and easy to use blogging platforms. A few of the more popular ones are: If you have a friend that blogs feel free to mention this page to them, or if you want to really surprise them nominate them, stating why you think they deserve this scholarship. Like great blog posts, short & interesting is preferred over verbose.

Students who excel at sports will often have a long list of tangible achievements. Students who produce fine arts or participate in student leadership programs will easily find ways to highlight their participation in these extracurriculars on college applications. But writers will often have a harder time highlighting the skills, time, and energy put into perfecting the craft of writing. If you are a student who excels at writing, how can you draw attention to your abilities and dedication on your college application? Are high grades in the humanities and a well-written essay enough? How can you show that this skill is something you pursue as an extracurricular activity outside of regular school hours? Winning a writing contest does much more than simply look good on your college application.

Below are sixteen distinguished writing contests across all genres, open to high school students. The contest, founded in 2010, is designed to encourage young writers to create new pieces for the stage. Below are tables listing various essay contests and other non-fiction writing competitions, prizes and awards. Some are academic, some offer scholarships and others are just for fun. If you run an essay competition or non-fiction writing contest and would like me to add it to the lists below, please contact me providing the following information in the body of an email: I do my best to keep this page up-to-date, but if you spot any errors, incorrect information or links that no longer work, please get in touch and let me know - I try and fix any problems quickly :-) Some of the contests listed on this page are run by essay writing service providers. While I'm not totally convinced that these services are entirely ethical (some of them essentially allow students to cheat, by paying someone else to write their essay/thesis), they are still listed here as they do offer large cash prizes, so can be of benefit to writers. I have revised this page, placing all the essay writing service competitions in one list with a caveat at the top regarding the business niche. In 2017 I started to receive a lot of requests for listings by affiliate websites that have little or nothing to do with writing. They often offer scholarships with decent cash prizes. However, my audience are writers, so I want to keep this page on topic and relevant to them.
