The National Writing Board

The National Writing Board provides a unique independent assessment service for the history research papers of high school students. We have evaluated papers from 37 states and 11 other countries. Two senior secondary instructors review the paper, and a three- or four-page report is sent to the author, who may then decide which college admissions officers should receive it to add to the information they now have with which to evaluate an applicant. We have mailed our reports, at the requests of the authors, to more than 100 College Admissions Officers.

These papers are evaluated within twelve weeks against an independent academic expository writing standard developed by The Concord Review, since 1987 the only quarterly journal in the world for the academic work of high school students of history writing in English. E-mail any questions to Bob Nasson at The fee is $350, and three copies of the paper, with only the title and the number of words on the cover, should be sent, with the completed NWB submission form, to:
