We are not accepting essay contest mail-in entries. To align with the digitization of communication and learning, we have digitized the entire process and look forward to tweaking the process so that the contest remains accessible. The process to submit an entry is very easy. Please access the digital entry form via the following link: https://www.mdmunicipal.org/FormCenter/Essay-Contest-4/If-I-Were-Mayor-I-WouldDigital-Essay-Con-59
We understand that many classrooms are still remote. For students who may not be able to provide a type written essay, we will accept a jpeg of a handwritten essay. We only ask that you place any jpegs within a single file as you would a Word document or PDF.
Once you send in a digital entry form, you will receive a confirmation indicating the MML team has received it. Within one day (sometimes within the hour) you will then receive an email from an MML team member titled "MML Request for Essay Submission File" that will contain a Drobox File Request. Please follow the instructions within that email.
As we receive an increase in submissions, we may need a full day to send out File Request emails. Rest assured, you will receive the file request. Thank you for your patience. We’re excited about this new process. However, every step of it is new to us. We have taken great pains to replicate our traditional process in a digital manner so that every essay is counted and is given an opportunity to be judged. If it has been more than a day since you submitted your entry form without getting a file request email in return, please contact the MML Team member managing entries from your county:
Paula Chase Hyman - firstname.lastname@example.org : Anne Arundel, Baltimore City and County, All counties of the Eastern Shore, Frederick, Montgomery, All counties of Southern Maryland
Sharon Easton - email@example.com : Allegany, Carroll, Cecil, Garrett, Harford, Prince George’s, Washington,
No. Once we receive your digital entry form, you will receive an email with a link that will allow you to upload the essay file to the folder designated for your school’s MML District. It’s as easy as attaching a file to an email. There’s no log in and no password required. It’s essential that you follow the other guidelines including naming the document properly and having all of your students’ essays in one file.
