Enjoy creative writing? We are looking for essay readers to evaluate and score student writing entries in the Pedro Arrupe Writing Challenge (PAWC). Your evaluations will lead to the selection of contest winners, with prizes awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place writers. This is a virtual volunteer opportunity, where you will receive 7-10 anonymous essays (each about 1-2 pages long), along with a detailed rubric for scoring. Essays and rubrics will be emailed by Wednesday, January 10 and are requested back by Thursday, January 25.
There will be an awards lunch at Arrupe Jesuit High School on Friday, February 9 at noon, where our top three writers will read their essays aloud and receive their prizes. Volunteer readers are invited to attend, along with Arrupe's teaching faculty, student writers, and the families of our top three writers.
