The Shakespeare Fellowship 2012 Essay Competition

writingWelcome, students and teachers, to the Shakespeare Fellowship essay contest.

2012 Contest Guidelines

The purpose of the contest is to involve secondary school students in the creative and analytic synthesis of knowledge about Shakespeare, the Shakespearean Canon, and the Shakespeare Authorship question, by offering prizes for the best essays.
Since we began our contest in 2002, many teachers have written to thank us for the pedagogical opportunity provided by the essay contest. “Thanks so much for providing the forum to inspire students towards excellence,” wrote Audrey Wells from the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy.

In previous contests, we’ve received hundreds of entries. Essays came not only from the United States, but from many other countries including Canada, Bulgaria, Romania, Nigeria, Malaysia, Thailand, Japan, Korea, and the United Kingdom. We welcome entries from students of all nations and hope that this year many more teachers from all over the world will find the essay contest a useful resource for stimulating thinking, discussion, and the development of analytic and critical thinking skills.

Please note that any entries already submitted in 2011 will be accepted.
