I was selected as a topical winner! I never would have thought one of my poems would be published!

Isabela M  on 5/1/2020 12:23:39 PM

I just submitted my poem. So excited that someone else will be reading my work. Even if I don't win the scholarship, I hope I inspired my readers by my craftsmanship somehow.

Cant wait to win!!!

Margo M.  on 1/5/2018 10:18:40 PM

I entered this contest a couple of months ago (maybe 2) and my poem was within the top 2% of all poems across the nation that were submitted. My poem won in the "My World" division, and will be published in one of their books. I highly recommend entering this, because it was a lot of fun to be able to write my own poem!

It's always worth a shot!

Test-Optional Colleges Pledge to Judge Applications Holistically

October 22, 2020

by Izzy Hall

In response to the coronavirus pandemic and the way it has made it harder than ever to take the SAT and ACT, many colleges and universities, from large state universities to small liberal arts colleges, have announced that their admissions for next year’s Class of 2025 will be test-optional. Test-optional admissions mean that schools won’t require a submission of a standardized test score as part of the admissions process. But how will admissions officials judge applicants without a score? Will a student who doesn’t submit a standardized test score be penalized in any way? And will a student who does submit a score be chosen over one who doesn’t? [...]
