On Tuesday, October 29, 2013, submissions for the 2013 Eberly Common Reader Essay Contest will be due in Eberly Room 208.

Students are separated into categories according to their class standing (freshman or upperclassman). A first place prize of $500 and a second place prize of $250 will be awarded to the best essays in each category.

Each student is highly encouraged to participate in the competition! The essay prompt, rubric, cover page, and more information can be found on the Common Reader Page.
