The CARE Writing Prize
CARE offers a writing prize for any student enrolled at the GTU who, in the course of their regular class assignments, writes a paper addressing content of the current exhibition in the Doug Adams Gallery at the Badè Museum. The paper may also address related themes and artifacts from the Badè biblical archaeology collection. The winning essay will receive a cash prize of $250, and the writer will deliver the paper as a public lecture in the gallery as exhibition-related programming.
One prize will be offered each semester. Word Count: 1200-1500 words.
Fall 2012 semester entries should be submitted prior to November 9, 2012.
