We’re looking for great people willing to serve as a Mali Rising's Make the Case for Caring Essay Contest reviewers.
The Make the Case for Caring Essay Contest is our annual challenge to U.S. high schools students to think creatively, critically, and compassionately about international development issues. See http://www.malirisingfdn.org/essay for info and this year’s theme. The essays are 300 to 500 words, so fairly short.
Reviewers do the initial scoring of essays to identify the 40 finalists. We’ll provide a score sheet and 25 essays for you to review and rate. The essays will come your way in the first 2 weeks of April, and you’ll have 2 weeks to review and score them.
