Roger & Ann Worthington Essay Prize in Plan II Honors

Annual Writing Contest: 2014

Open only to Plan II students.  The 2014 prompt will be posted here in the spring.

A generous gift in 2002, from Plan II alumnus Roger Worthington and his wife Ann, made the Worthington Essay Prize possible.

A yearly competition, the Worthington Essay competition poses a difficult moral problem which entrants must answer in a short essay. Only Plan II students are eligible.

Essays should be 1000 - 1500 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 $3000
(for an incoming student not winning the grand prize)
Second Prize, $2000
