Endangered Species Essay

 

For the 2018 contest, there is a special prize that will be awarded in the 14-15 year old section for essays that address endangered species!

In addition to the monetary prize, the top three essay submissions from 14- to 15-year-olds addressing endangered species will receive a signed, personalized copy ofEndling No. 1: The Last,by Katherine Applegate (author of the Animorphs series and The One and Only Ivan). Honorable mention recipients will receive a signed copy.

The Earth is now in the midst of its sixth major animal extinction. The last mass extinction—approximately 65 million years ago—caused the disappearance of the dinosaurs. Although extinctions are naturally occurring, the current mass extinction is unique in that it is caused almost entirely by humans. A 2010 study of species concluded that at least one-fifth of the world's mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish are threatened with extinction due to human activity.

Judging

Judges' decisions are final. We reserve the right to adjust the number of prizes and the amounts of the prizes based on the entries received. Please read the Advice for Participants to see what the judges will be looking for.

Deadlines

Entry deadline:Monday, April 30th 2018 (11:59pm PDT)
Results announced:Monday, June 11th 2018

Advice for Participants

The judges offer the following advice based on entries from earlier contests:

  • Read the rules! Every year we disqualify a number of entries because they did not follow the rules.
  • The judges will be looking for:
    • Personal initiative (e.g., how big a role did you play in developing and driving this project or in your portion of the project)
    • Commitment and presentation
    • Clarity and power of the presentation; your presentation should inspire others to get involved
    • Original ideas in the topic, the presentation, or the suggested responses to the animal suffering.
  • If your entry is an essay the judges will look for:
    • effective opening and closing paragraphs. The essay needs to be well organized with paragraphs structured around the main parts or points. 
    • good structure with good word choice and fluid writing. Check spelling, grammar and punctuation. The essay must be free of blatant errors; all research that is done must be adequate for the topic and have quality references – references from Wikipedia do not carry much weight.
    • a readable font! Decorative or script fonts are hard to read for more than a sentence or two, and with the number of submissions we receive we do not spend time reading hard to read scripts.
  • If you submit a video the judges will look for:
    • What motivated you
    • How you hope to inspire others to bring about change
    • How you present your subject
    • Something visually interesting
  • The judges will give extra credit for:
    • Any research that is done into the cruelty or problem.
  • The judges will take an especially harsh view of plagiarism. Don't do it! Cite all your sources.
  • ESSENTIAL: Learn from previous winners! Look at their entries to see how they stand out. Look at our home page and the submissions of four previous winners.
  • Make sure the file or URL you submit is your actual entry! Each year we receive files which are clearly not the author's essay file. Due to the number of essays submitted we are unlikely to have time to contact you about your mistake.
