Undergraduate students at Central Washington University are now polishing their prose for submission into the Washington Consortium for the Liberal Arts (WaCLA) essay contest. The deadline for entries is Friday, April 11.
Contestants are writing up to 500-word essays around Albert Einstein quote: “Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted.”
A campus committee will pre-screen entries and submit up to six essays for the statewide competition. As many as three could come from the university’s freshman and/or sophomore classes, and a similar total from the junior and/or senior levels
CWU students advancing to the state level will receive $500 tuition waivers for next year. The state prizes are $1,000 for first place and $750 for second place in each of the freshman/sophomore and junior/senior categories.
CWU is among the 30 higher education institutions in Washington that comprise WaCLA, which serves as an advocate for liberal arts education.
“The liberal arts teach foundational skills and knowledge for all disciplines and all areas of the workplace,” said Marji Morgan, dean of the CWU College of Arts and Humanities, “and these student essays will help to highlight this important message.”
