Announcing the Holtz Center for Science and Technology Studies Thematic Undergraduate Essay Contest
Sponsored by the Disclosing/Enclosing Research Cluster
Prompt: Discuss a situation in your life where you are revealing or trying to keep from revealing information. What are the long term consequences of disclosures? What expertise would you need to draw on to create a solution to this problem? How does the act of revealing something simultaneously conceal something else? Feel free to go beyond your own experiences by discussing essays/commentaries on this topic by other writers or speakers you’ve encountered in college.
NOTE: All submissions are to be original essays. 1,000-1,250 words in length, typed, double-spaced. Each essay must include a title page with the following information: title of essay, student’s name, major, institution, college and home address, e-mail address, telephone number, and the following statement:
“I hereby affirm that this is an original essay and my own work.”
Eligibility: This competition is open to UW System undergraduates in good academic standing.
Award: There will be one award for $500 and two honorable mentions. The winning essays will be posted on the Enclosing/Disclosing website. Winning essays will be selected by the co-PI’s of the thematic cluster. There will be a reception April 30 to announce the winners.
Submission: Email your submission to Student Assistant Julia Tabat at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for submission is FRIDAY, APRIL 10th, 2015 AT MIDNIGHT, CENTRAL STANDARD TIME.
