This is an art of reporting and describing a topic. With our Essay Writing Contest, we would like to discover essay writing talent from the student community. This also acts as a scholarship for students and helps in releasing their load of academic expenses by way of cash prizes. This is also an attempt to make our young generation to get back to their pens and paper. Hence, such attractive prizes.
