The Cook Honors College at Indiana University of Pennsylvania announces the annual Making a Difference essay competition for high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors.
Consistent with our mission to create engaged and thoughtful citizens, the essay contest invites students to reflect on their own experiences with community service by answering the question “How have you been transformed by your own community service?”
Essay requirements and the essay cover sheet can be found on the IUP Cook Honors College website. Essays are due by November 5, 2011, with winners announced in December. Winning essays are eligible to receive over $2,000 in cash prizes, including a $1,000 first-place award.
