    Scholarship Short-Essay Question

    On page 3 of this form you will submit your answer to our Scholarship Essay.

    Please write a 100 word short-essay of your answer to the following question:

    How can Animated Voice-Over Projects benefit your life and the life of those around you?

    (Definition: Animated Voice-Over Projected could mean Film, TV, Commercials that are animated.)

    Does My Essay have to be exactly 100 words.
    100-word essays do not have to be exactly 100 words, but they should be as close as possible. Try to stay within 75-125 words.

    (100 words is about 7 sentences. It is a long paragraph.)

    Do you have helpful tips on how to format the essay?
    There is no hard rule here. But here are a few suggestions. Be creative.

    The format of a 100-word short scholarship essay is similar to a long paragraph. Each paragraph consists of 7-8 well-written sentences. If you are writing a story or personal anecdote, the formatting can be more like a novel than a long answer.

    The main components of a 100-word essay include:

    • Introduction sentance that engages the reader and establishes the thesis. The thesis may be a question that you will later answer in the essay content, or it can be a statement that you support in the body paragraphs. If you are writing a story, your “thesis” may not be as apparent.

    • 4-6 body sentences that provide evidence to back up your thesis. The paragraph should be a cohesive element with an intro and conclusion. The sentences should flow well from one point to the next.

    • A conclusion sentence that reminds the reader of the thesis and highlights key points from the body text. The conclusion should answer the question or complete the statement made in the introduction. It should give the reader a sense of closure and resolution

    Do you have any tips on writing a good short-essay?
    Here are some tips to help you write a great 100-word scholarship essay:
    • Give yourself at least 1 full day to write the essay. You can use the first hour to write a draft and do some minor editing. Then on the second hour, you can look at the essay with fresh eyes to do your final edits.

    • If you have a chance to show your essay to your parent to proof read, do so. You can use the feedback to improve the essay before submitting it.

    • Don’t focus on the word count as you write. Get all your thoughts on paper, and you can extend or shorten the essay during the editing process.

    • Write the first draft from start to finish, even if you know your thoughts are out of order. You can re-arrange them at a later time, but the initial run through will be as fluid as possible.

    • Re-read the prompt several times before writing. You don’t want to write an entire essay only to find out you were completely off topic.

    • Always think about your audience when writing a scholarship essay. What organization is issuing the scholarship, and how can you tie that into your writing? What is the underlying information they want to learn from your essay? Write in a way that shows you are the best candidate for the scholarship.
