    I’m an 8th grade language arts teacher and I required all of my students to do this writing essay, but made entering the contest optional and up to them. Many/most of my students had quite a bit of trouble keeping it at 200 words. What happens if they exceed the word count?? Is there a maximum? Also, most wanted to type the essay and I assumed that was fine. I did tell them to paste it onto the given paper to send in. Does that work?
