Addie Harpold of Oak Point, TX Awarded $1,000; attending Texas Tech University in Fall 2019
Addie Harpold of Oak Point, TX has been awarded $1,000, which will be applied to tuition costs at Texas Tech University where Harpold will attend in the fall of 2019 as a freshman.
“We offer this scholarship every year to a high school or college student who submits the most compelling essay on persuasive writing including a comparative analysis of the art of persuasion through writing versus verbally,” says Smith Publicity CEO Dan Smith. “Persuasive writing is a core component of book marketing and book publicity. Our publicists pitch media everyday, typically beginning with a written pitch or press release.”
Harpold’s essay, titled "O.J. Simpson, a Kitten, and the Gutenberg Press- the Elements of Persuasive Writing,” blended seemingly disparate topics into a compelling examination of the art of persuasive writing.
"I'm beyond excited to have won this scholarship because that means I was able to help myself through college doing something that I am very passionate about, and that is writing,” says Harpold. “I was challenged to think outside the box for this essay prompt and I am always enthusiastic about experiences like that. Thank you Smith Publicity!"
