This Fall (and Spring) semester we will be featuring two categories in
our bi-annual essay contest: our traditional essay contest and a new media
(or multimedia) essay contest. We are putting the "Experience" back into the
New Student Book Experience; it's time to get creative!
Note: Both categories will have a first place winner and two honorable mentions.
1st place winner receives a $200.00 gift certificate from the bookstore.
Two runner-ups receive a $100.00 gift certificate (each) from the bookstore.
New this year, we are extending our writing contest to multimedia. Instead of writing your essay, shoot a video, write a poem, write a song, write a rap... express your experience based upon the book.
*** Submissions for the Fall 2014 entries are now closed. ***
Information for the Spring 2015 submission dates will soon be announced.
