Hello contestants of EssayHub’s essay writing contest; we are here to inform you that the contest has officially ended on April 30th, 2017, with three different prizes available for first, second and third place respectively. On the 15th of May, the three winners were selected from a large pool. We wish to congratulate Hiran Patel from India for his essay on improving the international education system; his essay earned him the 3rd place spot. In second place came American writer Jason Headford, writing a fantastic article about the ever diminishing illusion of the American Dream. Our first place writer wished to remain anonymous, but we must thank her for a fantastic essay on the pro’s and con’s of peer pressure. Overall, the winning writers decided to keep their social media information private so we must honor their request.
In the near future, we will be offering similar contests to more intrigued writers who are eager to show us their literary skills. If you are interested in sending us quality work for a chance to win an awesome prize, then please get acquainted with our instructions beforehand. Anyways, to all participants who were involved with the Essay Writing Contest, we thank you for your efforts and wish you success in your academic ventures!
