ENTRY FORM AND ESSAY SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS
Students are encouraged to read “The Land Ethic” and other essays by Aldo Leopold as part of your preparation. These can be found in A Sand County Almanac, available at local libraries, bookstores, and on the internet.
Students, parents, and teachers:
Here is a step-by-step guide to submitting your essay.
- When you complete your Essay, make sure that it does not contain any identifying information like your name, your teacher's name, or your school, so that judging can be anonymous. Entries may be typed or handwritten. Save your essay as a PDF file.
- Fill out the Entry Form with your name, school, and teacher's name. Make sure you allow time for your teacher to sign off on this form! Save this document as a separate file from your essay.
How to use the fillable pdf Entry Form:
- Completed entries must be submitted as two separate PDF files: (1) the completed essay, and (2) the completed entry form. Send both files to LeopoldWritingContest@usgo.net.
- Please be sure that the essay does not identify the author, sponsor, or school so that judging can be anonymous.
