2019 Worthington Essay Contest

Entries are now being accepted for the 2019 Worthington Essay Contest.

In 2002, Plan II alumnus, Roger Worthington (’80), provided funding for an annual essay prize in Plan II.  Originally a single prize, Plan II now awards 3 prizes each year, 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
First-Year Prize: $3500 (best essay written by a first-year student)
Second Place Prize:  $2500

2019 Essay Prompt: Recycling & Sustainability Solutions
