TCA is now accepting submissions for its Fifth Annual Youth Essay Contest.
The contest is open to recipients of services, volunteers, supporters or any one, 18 years of age or younger, that has been impacted by an organization that received a grant from TCA in 2017. To participate, contestants must submit an essay containing a minimum of 300 words and a maximum of 600 words, describing how a TCA grant recipient charity has affected his or her life.
Essays will be judged by select TCA board members and staff of Blood-Horse Publications on numerous criteria including the presence of a compelling and passionate argument, grammar, vocabulary and style, neatness and adherence to contest rules. Essays must be accompanied by a contest submission form and are due to TCA by 5:00 p.m. EDT, Friday, September 29.
