Project 3 - Show Me The Money!

Brain power equals earning power, maybe this is a formula:

Bp = Ep   or   Bp = $

The point is, you can use your brain power to make money in various ways.  This project, you will have your choice of methods.  There are 3 different contests, and all require you to use your brain and your writing skills.

Here's the deal:

You will participate in one of the contests above.  While the deadlines might be different, your deadlines for our project are the same, according to this page.  The due date is December 3 for ALL.

That only gives about 3 weeks, or 15 school days, as the last week of November is Thanksgiving Break.

YOU could win THOUSANDS of dollars for you or your school!  And this is only 1 contest.  Imagine going after more and more!  So, it's time to put your mind to work and make money with your brain power!

Intermediate dates:
  • November 4 - read the contests, be prepared to choose by Wednesday, Nov. 5, no changes after!!
  • November 5 - choose your contest (don't do what your friend does, be mature and do what YOU want)
    • We will have "workshops" on that day based on your choice.  Make a team website to hold information, and enter in the form here.
  • November 8 - Have a concept draft done.  This should be your best attempt at a good, finished essay, but it won't be (your teachers will help guide you to making pure literary awesomeness).
    • For Verizon App entrants, keep in mind ALL requirements, you need a draft of EACH component.  
    • For ALL entrants, look at past winners to get an idea, and use them as a reference point.
  • November 18 - Conference with teachers-- 10 minutes each.  You will sign up for a time to give your teachers a one minute pitch and receive feedback.  You need to bring your completed project.
    • This is our last full week before these are due.  You will spend so much time writing and re-writing (and Verizon App folks need more).
  • December 2 - last day before submission, should be nothing to do, maybe even submit.  
  • December 3 - submit, review.
CHECK THE CALENDAR FOR DATES, ETC., IN ADDITION TO THIS LIST ABOVE.  GO WIN THIS, SHOW ME THE MONEY!
