Default I'm a little nervous about handing in my enrichment center homework... advice please?

So I'm only ten years old and for my age am very phillosiphic and have a high volcabulary. I am also (duh) a writer. All good, right? Well, for my enrichment center homework, I had to write a christian essay about governing myself. The enrichment center is highly, highly, highly religeous, by the way. So I put my heart into it and wrote an essay on the topic, but now looking back, I'm kind of nervous. It looks impressive for something a ten-year-old would write, sorry for bragging, and I'm really scared that I might be suspected for cheating. I could write a crappy essay that had less vocab and less phillosephy and stuff and send that in. However, I really want to get a good grade on my first paper, and if I'm not suspected for cheating, I'll get one on the one I have now. What should I do?

Just give it in. I mean, if they ask say no. They'll be impressed. They'll usually ask you before they just fail you for "cheating".

Just hand it in. If they know how good you right, they won't think you're cheating. Even if they don't know how good you write they probably won't think you're cheating.

I really don't know :/ I'm homeschooled and I really don't know what they do in school. I say just send it in and if they think you're cheating, prove to them that you didn't. I don't know how you can prove to them but you seem like a very intelligent kid, you'll find a way

First (and foremost) don't brag about yourself. You may be intelligent, but you describe yourself as "philosophical". Never think you're smarter than you are. There are millions of people smarter out there than you: heck, I could be one of the people that is smarter than you, so don't try to flaunt what you might not even have.
Second off, turn the paper in. If you're as smart as you say you are, and the teacher does question your work, tell the truth. And if they kick you out, oh well. Find a new school.

My advice?? DON'T change your essay to make it worse just because you're afraid they think you're plagiarizing. You KNOW you wrote it. That should be good enough for them.

Nice..and you're only 10, AA?? I thought you were like 13! Definitely hand it in.If they still think that you're cheating, offer to write them an essay on the spot in front of them. That should clear them up.
