WaCLA 2014

You’ve got over a week to work on your entry for the WaCLA student essay contest! See Maggie Montague’s poster (above) and the WaCLA description below:
The Washington Consortium for the Liberal Arts (WaCLA) advocates for the importance of a liberal arts education and believes that the voices of those who are benefiting from such an education are profoundly persuasive. In an effort to let those voices be heard, we invite undergraduate students at Whitworth to participate in an essay contest. Details regarding this contest can be found at http://www.evergreen.edu/provost/wacla/waclacollegeessay.htm

State-wide awards will be made in two categories: freshmen/sophomores and juniors/seniors. Two awards will be made in each category: $1,000 for first place and $750 for second place. Whitworth will award internal prizes of $100 for first place and $50 for second place in both categories. Up to six entries will be chosen to compete at the state level.

DEADLINE: Tuesday, April 1. Please submit your essay and cover sheet to Julie Shanholtzer in Robinson Science Hall 103. Any questions can be directed to jshanholtzer@whitworth.edu. Best of luck!
