Admission to highly competitive universities has never been more challenging. The key to a successful application is standing out from the hundreds of other highly qualified applicants. ASC offers high school students a unique way to attract attention from these high-quality universities: earn top prizes in national writing competitions!
No matter what you want to major in at college, writing is a critical skill that all top-rated universities look for in a successful applicant. It does not matter what you know if you can’t convey it clearly and coherently in writing. The ability to write exciting and compelling papers has never been more important.
The A+ Program’s Writing Competition Course allows high school students to explore their creativity and passion for writing, while also preparing them for their academic and professional futures. The course agenda addresses teaching integral and effective writing strategies for genres such as poetry, short stories, expository, and personal narratives, as well as developing and practicing life success skills like goal setting and time management. By the end of this course, students will complete 2 or 3 writing competition submissions based on the competitions they individually research and select at the beginning of the course. Each writing competition has its own deadline and application process. Therefore, each student will individually conference with their instructor on how to tackle each writing submission and entry form to ensure deadlines are met and quality work is produced. In the A+ Program’s Writing Competition Course, students will feel accomplished and, hopefully, receive a prestigious award!
