2017 FLAND Foreign Language Essay Contest Theme: "Find the Missing Piece...Learn a Language"
The essay is to be written in English. It must be typed, double-spaced and no more than 300 words in length. The student should set the margins and the font to fit the essay onto one page. Each student should submit three copies of the essay attached to one cover page that contains the student's name, grade, school, and language teacher's full name. This information should not be on the essay itself. The essays will be judged using these criteria: use of theme, development of ideas, originality, organization, word choice and vocabulary, and grammar and mechanics. Students will be divided into two divisions according to grades.
Division I: 9th & 10th graders
Division II: 11th & 12th graders
Three cash prizes will be awarded in each division:
1st place - $25
2nd place - $15
3rd place - $10
Each teacher may submit five essays in each division.
Teachers must be current members of FLAND. If you have not paid your dues for the 2016-17 school year, you can find that information here.
