2018 Worthington Essay Contest

2018 Worthington Essay Contest

Plan II alumnus, Roger Worthington (’80), provided funding for the annual Essay Prize beginning in 2002.  Originally a single prize, now Plan II awards 3 prizes each year to Plan II students, including a first-year student prize. The essay topics have ranged from hypothetical scenarios to real-world events and always challenge students to form an argument on one side of a debate, then present it convincingly. Plan II faculty members read each essay to select the winning essays, and Plan II traditionally hosts a lunch for the winners. ALL current Plan II students are eligible to enter. 

Grand Prize: $5000 

Second Prize: $2500 

First-Year Prize: $3500 

Due: Friday, October 12th by 5 p.m.
