2016 June-July Essay Writing Contests
Earning sizeable cash has never come easier than in essay writing contests. There are tons of essay writing contests held each year, all over the world. If you do your research carefully, you’ll come up with a sizeable number of essay writing competitions.
Nevertheless, as a general rule (intended for good purpose): don’t participate in essay writing contests for the sake of prizes (especially in form of money). First of all, understand what an essay is, why essays are written or why there are essay contests. Prizes are a gratitude for a work well-done i.e writing essays.
Below, I have compiled a number of essay writing competitions from around the world. Try to participate in as many as you can be able. You never know which essay writing contest you may land on. Good luck and best wishes.
