Writing an acknowledgement for a completed project is easy if you follow these simple steps:

Typically an acknowledgement is found at the very beginning or very end of a report. It gives the writer an opportunity to thank and acknowledge the individuals that have helped them finish their work, or contributed anything towards the report.

To write an acknowledgement that is suitable for your project, try looking though other completed projects within your field. Adopt the layout or content and see how you can interpret the typical format into your own work.

  • You should look back through all of the reports, data and evidence that you collected for your project and write a list of all the individuals or companies that have contributed in some way. From this list you can then determine which of the contributions you actually used in your final piece. 

  • Ideally, you should only acknowledge anyone who physically added any information to your project or helped in the preparation. You should always mention your supervisor by name and other individuals that are mentioned will depend on the type of report you are writing. 

  • If it is a work report you should acknowledge your employer, while if it is an academic report you should acknowledge your school or professor. It is also a good idea to acknowledge anyone who might have helped you collect your data, or who participated in surveys or interviews. 
If there was a person who read through your drafts and offered you suggestions, you might like to acknowledge them as well. Normally other employees or students will not be acknowledged unless they had a direct and important influence on your work.

The formality of your report will really be determined by the circumstances it is being written in. In most cases it will need to be reasonably formal and avoid any excessive praise. In some circumstances you may have the opportunity to be a bit more light-hearted with your acknowledgement, but don't go overboard and start thanking your cat!

This is how I wrote my project acknowledgement:

I am very thankful to everyone who all supported me, for I have completed my project effectively and moreover, on time.

I am equally grateful to my teacher [name]. She gave me moral support and guided me in different matters regarding the topic. She has been very kind and patient, whilst suggesting to me the outlines of this project, and correcting my doubts. I thank her for her overall support.

Last but not the least, I would like to thank my parents who helped me a lot in gathering different information, collecting data and guiding me from time to time in completing this project. Despite their busy schedules, they gave me different ideas to help make this project unique.

Thanking you

(1). An acknowledgement should be written in simple language, and also in an attractive way
(2).  Firstly you should mention yourself, then the topic
(3).  Whatever the topic is, you should attempt it
(4).  When you are writing it, you should check the grammar and spelling
(5).  Lastly you should write what you gained from reading and learning about the topic

How to Write an Acknowledgement

It is a wonderful feeling when you complete a book, or a research document or dissertation. You have researched the topic well and you have received guidance from the experts or taken the help of assistants to compile your work.

Also there are different people who give you a lending hand at the various phases of your writing. They touch your writing in singular ways and some even make a lot of sacrifices to support your work, like your family members who go out of their way to accommodate your priorities of writing or researching.

Once you complete your work, you need to acknowledge the sources and people who helped you throughout. Usually, an acknowledgement is written at the end of a literary work.

As it is only an issue of showing your gratefulness to the people who have helped you and has nothing to do with the actual topic, you may choose not to include an acknowledgement in your literary work. However, mostly none leaves this part, because it is a matter of etiquette.

As it is more of a personal choice and style, it doesn't have a fixed style of writing or need to follow certain specific pattern. Acknowledgement can be written in a personal tone and use simple meaningful words to express your gratitude to the people associated with you. Although it is very easy to write an acknowledgement, you may find it tricky when you actually pen it down.

The various important sections in any book, research paper or thesis are: Abstract, table of contents, body, bibliography, references, and the acknowledgement. And although it is considered at the end of the loop, it is placed after the cover page.

Here are a few simple tips for you to write a meaningful acknowledgement. You can begin your acknowledgement straight away with a simple note, for example "I owe...." or "My sincere thanks...", followed by a sentence that you use to thank the people who helped you.

You may wish to thank your seniors or superiors who provided guidance and support to you to get out of your dead-ends at times. These people play an important role in the completion of your work. So, you must add in a line or two to show your gratitude.

You may need to decide who else to thank and what to thank for. Some people assist you in your work as a profession, but among these numerous people, some actually go out of their way and provide more help than usual.

In case you took help from people who are not directly involved in the work, but they have lent their hands to your work in a subtle yet important manner, you must not forget to add a line for these people to show your appreciation.

You can also add the names of your family members who have given you emotional support. Finally, it all depends on you to show your gratitude and appreciation in such a manner that you make the people mentioned feel special.

When writing an acknowledgement for a project, you must simply thank the people that have helped you complete the piece of work, mention the teachers who have guided you and supported you along the way, and also summarize what you've learned and what you enjoyed from partaking in this particular assignment.

Here's a quick acknowledgment I attached to one of my latest projects:

I would like to thank everyone that supported me and helped me complete my project in time and to the best of my ability.

My family was a great source of moral support and motivation. They believed in me, and created a environment conducive to learning and focus, in order for me to devote my time and attention to my project.

I am so thankful for my teacher's input and support. He was a mentor and a guide, and helped me understand the best way to present my material, and to conduct my research and writing.

I am also grateful for the time and patience which my close friends had in me. They offered to proofread my work and suggested improvements.

They also understood my need for focus and time to concentrate, and were very patient when I was unable to hang out with them due to my commitment to the project.

Overall this has been a very rewarding experience. I have learned a lot about the topic at hand, and was reminded how lucky I am to have so many supportive people in my life.

Thank you,
