Asalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatu Allah Wa Barakatuh,


This letter is to inform you that you are to submit an Essay on Tuesday April 15th, 2014 (Due date is sharp). This is called an “Essay contest” and will contribute to your academic work as a TEST grade ( failure to submit the essay will result in a zero)

The Essay contest will include high school grades only.


Winners will be selected based on the following rubrics:

1- Authenticity of the essay.

2- Level of strength of vocabulary usage.

3- Sentence structure.

4- Cohesion and unity of the essay.

5- Use of classic essay building: A- Introduction, B- body, and C- Conclusion.
