Grammarly Announces Winner of 3rd Annual $1,000 Scholarship
On January 12, Grammarly launched its third annual scholarship essay competition, encouraging students to share their thoughts on one of two writing prompts:
- What is poetry, and how does it influence your writing?
- What is the funniest book you have ever read? Talk about why the book was funny and how it impacted you.
We received an overwhelming response from students of all ages, in all disciplines. After perusing your essays, Grammarly is delighted to announce the $1,000 scholarship winner: Elizabeth Woolf.
Elizabeth shared how spoken word poetry empowered her to develop her poetic voice. Her poetry is about “simple and complex thoughts; from [her] obsession with lakes, red doors, airport security, and sweatshirt hugs, to [her] puzzlement with the passage of time.”
Congratulations, Elizabeth! You certainly have a way with words.
To all of the participants in this year’s scholarship competition: Thank you for sharing your personal thoughts and anecdotes. The Grammarly team enjoyed reading each essay, and we encourage each of you to keep on writing.
