First ThePensters Essay Writing Contest

April 2015 - May 2016

Our custom writing service works hard to make your college life easier. We offer professional help with essay writing to everyone in need and are happy to reap the fruits of labour in the form of your improved grades and academic proficiency. However, we’ve decided to go even further and provide a college scholarship of $1,000 to the proud winner of our first contest.

Are you all ears now? Good! Then it’s time for you to read the terms and conditions of our first contest.

How to Participate in the First Contest

Step 1.Write a creative narrative essay in English (400-500 words). Follow our requirements for essay writing, which are stated below.

Step 2. Send your essay to contest@thepensters.com till May 31, 2016. Together with the essay, add all of your contact information:

  • name/surname
  • attending college/high school
  • year of graduation
  • major
  • phone number
  • e-mail

Step 3. Wait for us to contact you by June 15, 2016, because if you get a note from us – you are the winner!

Essay Requirements

  1. Essay length should be a minimum of 400-500 words.
  2. Answer the following questions in your essay:
    • Who is the Penster?
    • What is his/her story?
    • Why does our world need heroes like him/her?

    Bear in mind: There is no need to answer the questions directly. Your answers could be traced all over the writing. For example, you could write about a real person that deserves the rank of the Penster (but don’t forget to explain why you consider him/her worthy of this title). You could also create a legend, a myth or a fairy tale and write about that. Or, if it suits you better, you could write a whole research paper on this topic.

  3. The recommended essay type would be narrative writing, but we give you complete freedom to express yourself in your own way. So don’t limit yourself to the suggested narrative writing, which normally would suit this task best.
  4. Do not write about yourself and don’t try to explain why you deserve to win the scholarship. We only care about the quality and creativity of your writing. Your reasons for participating and the explanations on why you need the money are not relevant in this case.
  5. Any point of view is acceptable. However, there must be no racism, sexism or fascism in your story. It is really hard to get these things into an essay about the Penster, so please don’t try to do it ☺.
  6. If you use clichés, use amusing ones. It is also okay to use slang as long as your writing style requires it. However, we would strongly recommend you to avoid profanity.
  7. You don’t have to stick to academic style in this essay – you have enough of that in college, after all. So be creative.

Who Has the Right to Participate

We don’t care about your gender, age, race or nationality. Our only requirement is that you should be a current high school/college/university student. Only in this case, will we check your essay.

Deadline to Apply

Please send your writing by May 31, 2016. We will not notify you about receiving your email. So, please do not send us emails several times and do not ask us if we received your submission.
