"Be Bold" No-Essay $10,000 Scholarship

The $10,000 “Be Bold” Scholarship is a no-essay scholarship that will be awarded to the applicant with the boldest profile. To us, boldest does not mean “best”, or “most accomplished”. Being bold means being: Earnest, Determined, Moving. The scholarship will be awarded to the student whose profile is most bold, according to these characteristics.

There are many different types of paragraphs, depending on what you are writing:

Descriptive Paragraph: This paragraph describes something or someone. For example, you can write a descriptive paragraph describing your best friend, including what she likes and dislikes, where she lives, what she wants for her birthday, and her favorite food.

Expository Paragraph: This paragraph explains an idea; it is also called an information paragraph. For example, you can write as expository paragraph explaining how to make chocolate chip cookies.

Persuasive Paragraph: This paragraph tries to convince the reader of something. This type of paragraph may start with a phrase like: “I think that…” The support section may include sentences that start with, “One reason is…,” or “For example…” It may end with something like, “This is why I think that…” For example, you can write a persuasive paragraph telling why people should vote for you for class president.

Narrative Paragraph: This paragraph describes an event or tells a story, usually in chronological order. For example, you can write a narrative paragraph detailing what you did on your first day of school.
