CAC Undergraduate Essay Competition
I am pleased to announce the CAC Undergraduate Essay Competition for 2001/2002. As was the case last year, in order to make the playing field more level for students in junior or introductory courses, there will be a second competition for essays written for junior/introductory courses. Essays for senior/more advanced courses will be judged in a separate competition. Cash prizes will be given to the winners of each competition (first, second, third) and the winning essays will be published on the CAC website. The deadline will be August 31, 2002 to allow essays from summer courses to be included, and winners will be announced by December 2002. There are no restrictions on length or subject matter, but please make sure that the copy of the essay sent is a clean one (i.e., no grades, corrections, or identifying marks such as the names of the student or professor or the institution). If possible, please include a cover page with just the title of the essay, and the student's name and information on a separate sheet of paper. It would also be helpful if the nominating professor would indicate which competition (junior or senior) the essay should be judged under.
Please encourage your students to enter the competition.
Entries can be sent to:
