Essay Contest: With Prizes That Include a Signed Copy of The Red Pyramid!

Post by Christof on Wed Jun 09, 2010 12:57 am

First topic message reminder :

Introduction:
The Percy Jackson essay contest is now starting! Be creative, do your best, and you will have a big chance of winning. Read this entire post first: it contains important information.

Contest Description:
In this contest, you will chose one of the 4 prompts listed below and write a essay about that prompt. Be sure to answer the prompts as completely and carefully as possible. Be sure to back up your arguments with evidence.

The Prompts:

  1. How would the change in fate of one of the heroes (Luke, Silena, Beckendorf, or Zoe) have made the PJO series better? Why?
  2. If Luke's mother had not been mentally ill, because she tried to become the oracle; would Luke have not hated his father and become possessed by Kronos? Or would he have still hated the gods? Why?
  3. In the beginning of Titan's Curse, Thalia hates the hunters of Artemis. But by the end of the book, she agrees to become their lieutenant. Apart from wanting not to turn 16, why does she do this?
  4. Unlike other monsters, Mrs. O'Leary is not "evil". Why? Be creative.


The requirements:


  1. The essay must be at least 200 words. Once you have written 200 words, keep on writing. There is no maximum word count, so write as much as you need to in order to have a good essay.
  2. Include proper spelling and grammar when you write this essay. We don't have time to edit every spelling mistake that you make. Bad spelling and grammar
    will only hurt you.

  3. Get your parent's/guardians permission (if you are under 18). We will have to collect your address, and we want to make sure that it's OK.
  4. If you win you will have to supply your real name and address in order to receive the prize.
  5. If you are a staff member of MortalNet, you can not enter.
  6. You can only submit one essay.
  7. The winning essays will be posted on MortalNet.


How to Enter:
Private Message (PM) Posidonsdaughter with your essay. You will need to have a forum account in order to do this.

NOTE: If your essay gets lost, you should keep a copy on your computer after you submit it as backup.

The Deadline:
We will stop accepting essays by July 15th, 2010. That should give you enough time to write your essay.

The Prizes:
The
p
rizes are a signed copy of THE RED PYRAMID, a CD audio copy of THE RED PYRAMID, and a signed paperback copy of THE LIGHTNING THIEF. The prizes will be chosen by the winner order. (If the submitted works are so superior that we have ties additional prizes will be awarded.)

Winners will have to give their name and address to receive the prize. We will try to get your prize to you as soon as the winners are announced.

If you need help:
We
want everybody to do their best, so if you want some help with your essay please PM me (christof) or Richard (riczhang). Please note: we are happy to help you with spelling, developing your ideas, providing constructive criticism, but we aren't going to write your essay for you. So please don't send us an essay that is absurb and says "I like
Mrs. Oleary" and say "Can you fix the errors?" We well help you, but you have to do most of the work.

Judging:

The judges will be Suzanne (Posidonsdaughter), Christof (christof), and Richard (riczhang).

good luck everybody. We are looking forward to reading your essays Smile

UPDATE: we are giving you some more time to finish your essays. If you have not submitted one yet, you need to get it in by July 20th. So hurry up, and get those essays in.
