Do I need a Dropbox account to submit essays?

No. Once we receive your digital entry form, you will receive an email with a link that will allow you to upload the essay file to the folder designated for your school’s MML District. It’s as easy as attaching a file to an email. There’s no log in and no password required. It’s essential that you follow the other guidelines including naming the document properly and having all of your students’ essays in one file. 

Upon clicking our Dropbox submission link, if you continue to receive a message that asks you to sign-in, it's very possible that your school system's server is blocking access to upload. Often, when this occurs, teachers have successfully uploaded from home using the same link.

Anne Arundel County teachers: Very often your server is among those that tend to block access.
