Annual AC Essay Contest

AC’s 3rd Annual Student Writing Excellence Competition

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. Previous winners have gone on to attend Texas A&M with this in their 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 should submit work you’ve ALREADY DONE.

But it’s not just about bragging rights.

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?

  • Students enrolled either at Angelina College or a high school participating in Angelina College’s dual credit program as of Spring 2022. 
  • 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 31, 2022.
