  1. Hi Sarah,

    You can format your essay in whatever way you think will make it most effective. Color outside of the lines if it helps make your point!

  2. Does it matter where we put our name, School, grade, and teacher, etc etc? Or is there a place where you would prefer it? Another question I have is are there any prizes for second and third place?

  3. Oh one more question that I had was can we change the color of the writing? Instead of just black?

  4. If the essay is a few words over the word limit will it be disqualified from the competition?

  5. I realy like this wedsite, but i have a question. How many entrees did you recieve for the Edger Allan Poe Essay contest?

  6. @Jada, the other finalists win a Shmoop t-shirt, a certificate, a shout out on our website, and our respect and admiration.

  7. In the novel Pride and Prejudice there are many themes we have crossed by while reading the novel? What are the most important themes in the novel? And how does it relate to the characters?
