Example Application Essays

Every year, over 150 young women from across Nova Scotia join their school’s Techsploration team. As part of the application process, applicant’s must submit either an essay, a poem, or a piece of artwork that reflects why you want to participate and demonstrates your commitment and level of interest in the program.

At the end of the program, you and your team will travel overnight to one of three Techsplorer Events across the province. At each of these events, Techsploration announces the Top Three Essays from each division. These essays, poems, and pieces of artwork are professionally printed on posters to be displayed at the event, as copies are printed for each of the recipients to take home.

Here are some ideas you may wish to include in your essay or use as inspiration for your poem or artwork:

  • Your personal interests
  • Hobbies
  • Career interests
  • Volunteer work
  • Extra-curricular activities
  • How you heard about Techsploration
  • If you’ve had any family members on Techsploration teams
  • Role models you would be excited to meet

Essays must be 500 words, typed; poems and essays must be emailed to your Techsploration team teacher.
