TransitionsAbroad.com is hosting its 15th annual Student Travel Writing Contest! All currently enrolled undergraduate and graduate students, students who have graduated within the past year or two, and students currently on leave from school are eligible to submit an essay/article.
On their website you can find a list of questions to use as a basis for your entry. The idea is to share your own experience and tell your story, while providing useful information and insights for students considering going abroad. From their site: “Past winners have submitted articles that we consider excellent and informative, especially for other students considering such options.”
All winning pieces, judged by a panel of three members involved in international education, will be published on the TransitionsAbroad.com website. And below are the prizes that will be awarded for the winning student writing submissions:
- 1st Place: $500
- 2nd Place: $150
- 3rd Place: $100
- Runner-up: $50
The contest deadline is September 30, 2014. Share with your friends and submit your own story!
