This is an awesome contest! I have been at the 2018 anniversary celebration where the winners are acknowledged by the judges. Brandon Sanderson was there!!! The winners were so appreciative. Yes, it is a big deal when you win. Oh, yes, there is also the Illustrators of the Future contest. The artist winners were also there. The whole thing was amazing...

Is this scholarship for any college of choice or just one? Also, how long should our submission be? Is there a page or word limit?

Test-Optional Colleges Pledge to Judge Applications Holistically

October 22, 2020
