WaCLA Essay Contest:
Don’t miss the chance to win $1000 by submitting an essay addressing the prompt below and cover sheet to Julia Shanholtzer in Robinson Science Hall 103.
Statewide prizes are $1000 for first prize and $750 for second prize for both senior/junior and sophomore/freshmen divisions. At the Whitworth level of competition, students can win a first prize of $100 or second prize of $50.
Prompt: In 2012, Washington STEM’s Sandi Everlove and Washington Consortium for the Liberal Arts Chair Michael Zimmerman stated in a Seattle Times OpEd:
“When an imaginary controversy is promoted between STEM disciplines and the liberal arts, all it does is divert our attention from focusing on the larger problems associated with the lack of public funding for higher education. Such false controversies make poor public policy.”
With that conflict in mind, in no more than 500 words, please respond to the following adage:
“Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted.”
Also, don’t forget tonight’s Off-Campus Reading hosted by Westminster Round at Rocket Bakery (157 South Howard St) from 7-9 pm. Carpooling will be available in Westminster Hall at 6:20.
