Contest asks to imagine the possible
A few hours of daydreaming could win a Grade 12 student a tuition voucher to study in the Faculty of Arts.
Through a new competition, called Become Your Future ... In 400 Words or Less, the Faculty of Arts is inviting students to leap ahead 10 years, and imagine where an education in the social sciences or humanities has taken them. Students then have to share that vision through a written or audio piece in any form for example, it could be an essay or a poem, a newscast about an accomplishment or a mock-up of a company website as long as the work is original and concise.
“Daydreaming some possibilities is actually a great way to start planning for a future,” said Denise Hooper, senior career development co-ordinator for Arts. “A liberal arts education is terrific preparation for all kinds of careers.”
Become Your Future is open to all students who are currently enrolled in high school, and who will have graduated and be eligible to attend Memorial University in September 2007. Two vouchers to cover a full year of tuition (five courses in each of two semesters) will be awarded to winning contestants for 2007-08.
The contest deadline is Jan. 31, 2007. Details and rules, along with inspiring possibilities, are available at www.arts.mun.ca/future.
