EssayEdge, a leading college application essay editing service, announced today that it is launching its Tell Your Story College Admissions Essay Contest, which will award a grand prize of $1,000.

The contest will run from Nov. 3 through Dec. 1, 2009.

"With college application season in full swing, we want to offer an opportunity for students to compete for scholarship funds with their college application essays," said Scott Johns, manager of consumer business at "The number of college applicants is on the rise-so the essay is more important than ever in helping you stand out in front of the admissions committee."

The prize winner will be selected on or about Dec. 15, from among all valid entries received.

All essays will be judged by professional EssayEdge editors who will use the following criteria to evaluate the entries: proper grammar, spelling, and usage; topicality and organization; word choice, style, and eloquence; creativity and originality; and overall effectiveness.
