The Student Learning Commons invites all undergraduate students to enter the 7th annual writing contest.
Cash prizes will be awarded to the first and second place winners in each category.
All contest winners and honourable mentions will be published in an open access writing contest journal.
Co-authored papers can be submitted to the contest. In such cases, one author will complete the submission process, however, all co-authors must agree to the submission. In the case where a co-authored paper wins, the prize money will be divided equally among all co-authors.
