There are two days left to submit your college essays to the Best College Admissions Essays series! Winners and runners-up will be published in the 2017-2018 book, with a first prize of $1000 and two prizes of $500.
You’ve spent hours working on your essays, why not give them a new home in this book series? I think series like these are also a great way to help inspire future applicants and show them the wide range of approaches to the college essay.
Submissions are done through the app “Submittable,” and there is a $25 fee to enter. (This is, unfortunately, not uncommon for submitting to anthologies or book series, and often helps pay people to read all of the essays and/or goes towards the prize money). They do offer fee waivers, though they do not list details about how to receive them.
The link is below, and even though the link has “2016” in it, it will take you to the 2017-2018 submission.
