PLAGIARISM / HONOR CODE
By checking this box, the participant is acknowledging the Junior Orange Bowl Creative Writing Plagiarism and Copyright Policy (see below for full policy). By submitting an original work, the Participant understands and agrees that if they are found to have violated the Policy, their entry will be removed from consideration in the competition.
Plagiarism and Copyright Policy: The Junior Orange Bowl Creative Writing Contest is a search for new and creative thoughts and words resulting in the submission of original works, which should be new and different from what other authors have written. Copyright is a form of legal protection prohibiting others from copying someone’s creative work without their express permission. A copyright is a legal right of possession of one’s intellectual property. Copyright law grants the creator of an original work the exclusive rights for that work’s use and distribution. Plagiarism is an ethical violation resulting from failure to properly cite sources and engaging in the act of passing someone else’s work or ideas off as one’s own. This applies even if you have only copied a portion, rather than the entirety, of another author’s work. If the Junior Orange Bowl has reason to believe that a submission to the Creative Writing Contest violates the terms of this Policy, the Participant’s submission will be disqualified from consideration. The Junior Orange Bowl will also rescind or revoke any award given to a Participant who violates the policy. This Policy is necessary to preserve the integrity of the Contest and also to protect the Junior Orange Bowl and the Participant from potential financial liability.
