Bringing the idea of improving the world through education, Pest Control Hacks online platform announces a contest. The winner will get $1000 scholarship for education.
Are you a US student and have entomology topics in the sphere of your scientific or common interests? Then try your hand in the educational contest from Pest Control Hacks.
What are the contest terms and conditions?
Pest Control Hacks offers you to participate in the contest for the best-written essay. We’ve prepared two themes both connected with entomology and pest control studies, so that you can choose one of them for your essay. These are:
- “The day from the life of an insect.”
Here you need to select any of the existing insects species and describe 24 hours of its life. You can as well portray a life of an insect no more existing if you have enough scientific basis for this.
- “Urban pests: today and hundreds of years ago.”
Here you have a freedom to select any of the existing insects species or write about pests in common. In the first case, you need to describe how this species transformed for the certain period (at least 100 years need to be considered in your survey.) If you want to write about pests in common, track the change of their ecosystem for the past hundred (or hundreds) of years.
Most common pests you can choose as a topic for your essay:
When the topic for your essay is selected, please rely on the following requirements to write it:
- The essay needs to be at least 500 words.
- Unique content and clear structure.
- The manner of writing is unofficial.
- You may write your essay using fiction or science fiction style.
