Week 5 Challenge Topic - GRADUATE

Post by itsjoanne » Thu Aug 01, 2019 11:36 am


Hey there, Challengeers. Only this topic before we take a breather. We’re moving onward and upward this week. The Week 5 topic is:


The most common use is to receive a degree or diploma when completing a course of study. These days, kids graduate from pre-school. We may even refer to a child as having graduated from diapers to training pants. So there is the formal and accepted use of the word (like my oldest's graduation from high school a couple months ago!), as well as the less formal graduations in life.

For most of us, apart from the educational connection, we interpret graduation as a moving forward in life—from one stage to the next.


Graduate can also be used as a mark of measurement.

You can write in any genre or style you like, AS LONG AS SOME MEANING OF THE TOPIC IS THE MAIN FOCUS OF YOUR ENTRY ... and as long as the entry conforms to the rules.

And keep in mind the adjusted Challenge rule: Entries may be in any style or genre, and they do not need to be overtly Christian in message. However, they must, at minimum, come from a Christian worldview/outlook. In the case of fiction, the Christian worldview/outlook may be subtle or allegorical, but it should still offer a fairly clear Christian viewpoint.

Remember to check your word count before submitting (entries must be between 150 and 750 words). A very reliable and free online word count check tool is this one:


PLEASE, always hit the preview button to check your entry before hitting the final submit button. This is the only way to make sure your entry is uploaded correctly. This is very important, particularly if you are using HTML code for the first time. Once you have previewed your entry, close the preview page and hit the submit button.

Finally, once submitted, do a check to make sure your entry is safely in the list:


Hope to see you in the list.
