EVERETT, Wash. -- Universal Tutors LLC, a
unique tutoring company that serves students in two nations, is
pleased to announce its essay and poem writing contest. Students in
grades 4-12 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. The top essays and poems will be published in a book from
Universal Tutors, based in Everett, Wash..
"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.
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.
