Essay and Autobiography,
is divided into *two classes:
*essay category is for a composition about a
particular theme or subject other than a family and personal experience, but which may include personal points of view as well as analysis and interpretation.
The focus of the essay is a topic other than yourself, although you may be involved in the story. An essay may be written in
third-person form. An example might be “The Effects on Small Towns of the Loss of Rail Service” or “Closing the School” or “Losing a Hospital.”
*autobiography category is for those
personal and family experiences in which the focus is on
you. It is a first-person story, something you share about your relationships, influences, feelings. An example might be “How Grandma Taught Me to Drive a Truck” or “The Best Teacher I Ever Had Never Went to School.”
Please download and attach the required form to EACH piece submitted.
