Roger & Ann Worthington Essay Prize in Plan II Honors

2015 Topic to be announced in May

Deadline:  October, 2015

A yearly competition, the Worthington Essay competition poses a difficult moral problem which entrants must answer in a short essay. A generous gift in 2002 from Plan II alumnus Roger Worthington made the Worthington Essay Prize possible.

Only Plan II students may apply. Essays should be 1500 - 2000 words in length and offer a clear, well-reasoned answer to the question posed. Awards are not made for essays that argue both sides. Faculty will evaluate and judge the essays.

The first-year prize will go to the best essay by a Plan II student entering in the Fall, unless that student should win the grand prize.

Grand Prize, $5000

First-Year Prize $3500 (for an incoming student not winning the grand prize)

Second Prize, $2500
