$5000 for your brilliant college-bound kid…?
I wanted to tell you about this really cool contest, which not only rewards great writing, but is judged by great writers…
If you know and love a high school senior, let them know about "Extra Credit" – a scholarship program recognizing excellent college application essays. Just have the kid post their gorgeous slaved-over essay on Medium.com (link is below) by May 19 and somebody could win $5,000 for college!
The judges are an amazing line-up: Wally Lamb, Anna Quindlen, Mary Roach, Jeff Kinney and my pal Kelly Corrigan.
Winners will be announced June 2.
What a wonderful way to recognize and reward talented future-writers…
