Annual AC Essay Contest

Submission Deadline: March 29, 2024 

AC’s Annual Student Writing Excellence Awards

  • Entries must be submitted no later than March 29, 2024. 
  • Winners will be announced on or before April 19, 2024.

What is it?

The Angelina College Writing Excellence awards recognize achievement in four essay categories:

  • Freshman Composition
  • Researched Argument
  • Literary Analysis
  • Non-College High School Composition

Winners demonstrate strong communication skills and academic strength that looks great on a college application and resume. 

For high school entrants, it can be especially impressive because the contest is open to all junior and senior high school students in the area whose schools participate in AC’s dual credit program.

Best of all, you can submit work you’ve ALREADY DONE.

Prizes

  • First prize winners in each category will receive a monetary award of $250.
  • Second prize winners in each category will receive a monetary award of $150.
  • Third prize winners in each category will receive a monetary award of $100.

Who can enter?

  • Student entrants must be enrolled either in Angelina College or a high school participating in Angelina College’s dual credit program as of Spring 2024.
  • Student entrants must have a faculty sponsor.
    • The faculty sponsor should be the instructor (high school or college) who originally assigned the essay.
    • If the assigning faculty is unavailable to serve as the student’s sponsor for any reason, any current faculty who teaches at least one English course at the student entrant’s institution may fill this role.  
  • Entries must be submitted no later than March 29, 2024.
