Louis Agassiz Prize for Excellence in Writing Accordion Closed
10th annual Louis Agassiz Prize for Excellence in Writing scholarship essay competition
Kaitlyn Haskie was the $4,000 winner with her essay entitled: “A Paradigm Shift: Indigenous Peoples in the New Millennium”.
The essay topic for 2015-2016 was:
Contemporary Communication Tools
Technology has radically changed the way we interact socially. Everything from dating to voicing political opinions, from ordering food to sharing a ride or a home with someone unknown, can now be done in cyberspace. We have a plethora of ways to learn, spend free time, conduct business, and remain connected to others-whether family, friends, or people half a world away. Are there costs associated with this unprecedented connectivity and reliance on particular forms of technology? In your opinion, what are the most significant changes-on a personal or social level-that result from contemporary communication tools? Evaluate the personal and social impacts of these changes.
Thank you all for your participation. The 2017 competition will be announced soon.
Please see Louis Agassiz Prize for Excellence in Writing for complete competition details.
