ANSWER
Make sure your essay is flawless grammatically. If it’s poorly written, they will possibly just throw your application to the bottom of the pile. Don’t come off as arrogant, be humble, but let them get to know you on a personal level.

And you can take aware and must be,
Understand the purpose of the writing and the motivation of the askers
Analyze the question or topic
Analyze the Organization
And last, Create goals for the writing
For example, your goal in responding to an essay might be to:

* Demonstrate personal traits in yourself that are similar to the personal traits of the person for whom the scholarship is named. (The Brower Youth Award is given in honor of David Brower, to “honor his lifetime of bold action, inspiring mentorship, and principled effectiveness, which helped give birth to the modern environmental movement.”)
* Use present tense and optimistic phrases to show that you are an active, vibrant, can-do person.
* Show how your strong family support contributes to your success.
* Emphasize your sense of balance in academics and family life.

Good luck : )
