Essay Question

(I’m not sure I am in the correct Forum. Please move if not I’m not)

We are submitting our essays for the various awards on

The descriptions say: “this award will be judged based on a 500-word online submission”

Does that mean we have to be under 500 words? Let me know ASAP. I don’t want to be disregarded if we have over 500 words.


Teams are asked to keep their essays under 500 words because of the number of online award submissions that we receive. A well written and concise essay will judged to be superior to one that is longer and more wordy.
