Excite to Write

Excite to Write

Kent State University at Trumbull is proud to introduce Excite to Write, an essay writing contest for area high school juniors, seniors, and honor students.  

Created by Kent State Trumbull English faculty members, Ana Wetzl, Ph.D., and James Canacci, the purpose of the program is to help students realize that writing skills matter, while at the same time, strengthening Kent State Trumbull’s connection with local high schools that help make up much of its student body.

Winners from each category will be awarded Kent State Trumbull prizes, with the winning submissions posted on the university website.

The program does not create additional work for teachers or students; all submissions should be papers the students have already written for one of their regular English courses. The Excite to Write program is about recognizing the hard work which students have already put forth, not about making more. Students will be able to complete the program application form and upload their submissions directly to the Kent State Trumbull website.

Additional program information is available to:

All works submitted will be read by Kent State Trumbull English faculty and tutors and judged separately by grade (junior, senior, and Honors students).

Entries will be accepted between February 1 and March 31, 2014.
