Overview of Submitting InvestWrite Entries

Welcome. Thank you for choosing to participate in the InvestWrite national writing competition. 

Submitting InvestWrite Entries.

All essay submissions require PLAIN TEXT ONLY (.txt) formatting. NO HTML (hidden/visible) formatted text is allowed and may cause essay submission errors.

USER TIP:  Text written in programs such as Microsoft Word or Google docs may contain hidden HTML formatting. To avoid issues during the essay submission process, please remove all HTML and any < > symbols from cited sources. 

Submit in plain text only using the suggestions below.

For example, if your essays are written in Microsoft Word your essays could contain hidden HTML formatting. One easy method for removing HTML includes opening Notepad (standard software on a Windows PC); copy (ctrl+C) the essay text from Microsoft Word, paste it (ctrl+V) into Notepad; then copy from Notepad and paste text into the InvestWrite essay submission field. This will cleanse your document of any restricted HTML formatting and allow you to submit your essay as plain text content.   

After entering your Stock Market Game™ Username and Password you will have access to the InvestWrite national competition essay submission process. You will be asked to accurately complete three sections. They are:

  1. Review and update, if necessary, your contact information

Please make sure to review the guidelines, eligibility, and judging criteria to submit qualifying entries for the InvestWrite national judging. Remember, 10 teacher-judged entries per qualified classroom and only one essay per student. Please note, if the student's name appears in the text that is submitted, the essay will be disqualified.  The online entry form has a place for the student's name.
