Writing an essay for kids

Contest Brief

Write an essay for first graders (US grades) on Van Gogh OR an essay for fourth through sixth graders on the Ural Mountains. Anything sounding like a Wikipedia article (i.e. unfocused) will be disqualified. The essay should be 300-1000 words, preferably about 500. Indicate where pics could go but don't include any.

WARNING: Writing for children may look easy. It's not. REJECTED ENTRIES CANNOT BE REWRITTEN.

ANYTHING PLAGIARIZED WILL BE DISQUALIFIED FROM THIS AND ALL OF OUR FUTURE CONTESTS.

The essay must:

1. Be focused around a central point.
2. Be high-interest, low vocab
3. Be grammatically correct
4. Spelled perfectly
5. Show where pics could be placed (but don't include them)

Winner will receive $50. Top writers will be invited to write essays for kids on specified subjects. Each essay, once accepted, will earn $30 US. We need about 100 essays immediately and another 800 later.

See attached examples.

      I looked at it again, and my judgment is the same. It lacks focus and it is way above grade level. Writing for children looks easy. It isn't. Dr. G.

    should I have to write exactly the same type of content you have to given in the attachment?

      You don't have to write in the same style, but your writing must be age-appropriate
