How do I write an admissions essay?

Yellow55Yellow55 Registered User Posts: 2 New Member
I need to write an essay for entrance to a "young scholars program" at a local state college. The prompt is a basic "reasons for wanting to participate" and how it will relate to long term goals/plans.

I have never written an admissions essay like this before and am stuck, I cannot think of what to put down. What is the general response for this type of question or form?
