The MLA is having a student paper contest!
MLA is seeking submissions from students of exemplary research papers written in MLA style for publication on The MLA Style Center.
The five papers that best meet the submission criteria will be published on the site, and the authors of accepted papers will receive a certificate and a $50 gift card to an online bookstore. Papers will be evaluated by the MLA’s editorial team, and the finalists will be chosen by a committee composed of high school and college faculty members. Each student may submit one paper for consideration by the committee.
Authors must be 18 at the time of submission and enrolled in a high school in the United States or an accredited two- or four-year college or university during the 2019–20 academic year. They will be asked to sign a release form before selected papers are announced.
Students who wish to participate should read the submission guidelines and submit their papers by 28 October.
Winners will be announced in early December. We encourage you to spread the word about this opportunity for students to have their work published.
