The Defining Twilight Contest

Brian Leaf, author of Defining Twilight: Vocabulary Workbook for Unlocking the SAT, ACT, GED, and SSAT (Wiley), is hosting a contest that sounds pretty darn cool.

Your job is to write a creative essay of no more than 1,000 words that incorporates the eight words listed on Brian's contest page.

You can write Twilight fan fiction or an entirely original essay. Each essay will be judged based on: correct and effective use of the eight vocabulary words, creativity, clear communication of ideas, correct syntax, grammar, spelling, and punctuation.

Oh yeah, it's serious grammar time. There are three age categories and five winners in each category. (First prize is $500 and a copy of the book; second prize is $50 and a copy of the book).

Deadline: Essays are due on or before Friday, July 31st.

Good luck, readergirlz! Find the full rules and info here.
