I am aiming to earn a spot on the Academic Bowl team this year, and I appreciate you taking your time to read and interpret my essay. One reason why I would like to be on this team is because I want to push myself further this year. I want to really test out my knowledge, and to learn more.

Thank you so very much for taking your time to read this, and I will be happy no matter what your decision is for
