It’s time to show off your writing chops! 

In honor of Women’s History Month, Student Life is hosting a Women’s Writing Contest through March.

To enter the contest, students are asked to write an essay about a woman who has touched the lives of others. The featured woman could be an avid volunteer or a CEO of a fortune 500 company. The discretion is left to the writer.

The essay can be up to 750 words. Entries should be submitted to by March 27, 2013. Participants must type essays in double-space, Times New Roman, and 12-point font.

First prize winners receive a $100 gift certificate, second prize winners receive a $75 gift certificate, and third prize winners receive a $50 gift certificate, all to the campus bookstore.
