For the essay, we have to include a bibliography, is that going to be counted in our word count?

I am applying for the scholarship too! Hmm, that's a good question but I highly doubt that would be the case. I assume the bibliography would be separate. Do you know how competitive this scholarship is...how many people apply for it?

Ya, might as well apply. It is actually a lot of work, more so than the Queen's Scholarship.

It doesn't sound like more work than the queens one...that one had like 2 essays and a random creative thinking section.this one just has the public issues essay.

btw how long is the essay? 1200 words or something?

I am pretty sure that one high school can only sponsor up to 3 students for this award. So, it's an inner competition...

I'd do like 2 weeks for regular shipping or you could pay a few bucks and get express within a couple of days or whatever the post office says.

I had to apply through my school. I don't even know if they are sending it out, because they have to "consider it" alongside anyone else applying through my school.
