Not Solved WYSE Essay
Hello! I recently recieved an invitation to WYSE. When I went looked at the application requirements, it stated that an essay "pertaining to environmental studies or a class assignment" is required. I have a few questions about the requirements the essay must meet.

Does it have to be a certain type of essay? (argumentative, research paper, etc.,)

Should we include a bibliography/citations in our submission ?

Does the essay have to be about field work the applicants have done themselves?

Thank you!

Hi gwolfe822!

First of all, congratulations on your invatation to WYSE! Lots of people will probably tell you this, but I know we're all telling the absolute truth when we say that it's an amazing, life-changing experience. 16x16_smiley-happy

I attended WYSE in 2016, and when I applied, I included an essay about something that I'm passionate about, which is preserving ecosystems. I had just attended my local Herpetological Society's meeting, so I wrote about that and what I had learned there about longleaf pine ecosystems and how important they are to many different species. I did include a small citation, but I think whether or not you include one is really up to the type of essay you write. I would say that you should write about whatever excites you most about the environment, be it field work that you did, a class assignment, or anything at all about the environment you love.

I hope that helped!
