Liberal Arts Student Essay Contest

liberal arts essay contestIn 2012, Washington STEM’s Sandi Everlove and WaCLA 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, please respond to the following adage:

“Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted.”

Length: 500 words maximum
Deadline: 5:00 pm, April 25th, 2014
Submit to: vcaa@uwb.edu

Submission guidelines: http://tinyurl.com/kewh92u

Awards:
1st place: $1,000
2nd place: $750
Awards will be made in two categories: Freshman/Sophomore and Junior/Senior
UWB will submit up to three essays from each category to be judged statewide.
