Paper Tutoring Challenge!! [3rd-5th grade only]

Between the 24th - 31st of March, students will be encouraged to submit a piece of writing for feedback through Paper Tutoring's Essay Review for the chance to win a prize. Students can also submit feedback about Paper for a chance to win an additional prize. Here are the prizes, provided by Paper Tutoring:

  • 75 Students will be randomly selected out of all students who submit and download their reviewed essay during competition time for a $5 gift card.
  • 25 students who also complete a google form with feedback about their essay review will be randomly selected to receive a $10 gift card.
  • 15 Teachers with the most essays submitted for their classes will receive a $15 Amazon gift card.
  • Principals (one high, middle, and elementary) with the biggest improvement in essay review submissions during the week will receive a Paper T Shirt.

The item students submit for the Essay Review doesn't have to be a current assignment and we encourage every student to submit, and for any content area.


If you haven't had a chance to use Paper Tutoring yet, please check it out with your child. It is located on your child's Clever Dashboard. They provide help for all subjects and guide students through problems rather than simply giving the answer.
