The Student Learning Commons invites all undergraduate students to enter the 5th annual writing contest.
Students are invited to submit a paper written for an SFU undergraduate course during the 2021 calendar year (January-December). Although papers must have originally been written for a course, they can be revised for the writing contest to ensure they meet the contest criteria.
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.
How to enter and other details
For more, including all contest details, the submission page, and past winners, see the SLC Writing Contest journal Contest Information page.
