Comment by Evan O'Neil on January 2, 2014 at 10:41am

Aastha, we hope to have results by the end of January. It takes our judges a little while to read and evaluate all the entries.

Raghav, you are all set. Thank you for participating.

Krishi, yes, minor edits are acceptable. Please try to keep them to a minimum.

Good luck, everyone!

I made minor edits to my essay and resubmitted it. Is this acceptable? Thank you.

Comment by Raghav Chawla on December 30, 2013 at 5:13pm

I have posted on my wall but it said "awaiting approval". By when will it be visible to everyone and how will i get to know that it is visible to public. Also, do i have to do anything else to be eligible to participate in the contest?

Kindly address the above queries.

Thank you

Hi, I'm a newbie here, but it is a lie to say that I'm not interested in this competition.

My question is, "non students are automatically disqualified", but what if I'm a student now, but, let's say, I graduate in October 2013, am I still eligible for this competition?

Thank you
