2010 Paul Simon Student Essay Contest

Sponsored by the Illinois Community College Trustees Association. All currently enrolled students are eligible to participate.

The essay should address the theme, “How My Community College has Changed My Life.” Students can use this as the title of the essay or create their own title related to the theme. Essays must be typed, double-spaced, and limited to no more than 500 words. Entries will be judged on the basis of writing style, clarity of expression, and relevancy to the topic, with special emphasis on correct grammar and punctuation. The deadline to submit entries is Monday, March 15. Essays should be submitted to the Office of the President, Room A207.

The winner of the CLC competition will be recognized with a plaque at the CLC Board of Trustees meeting and will represent CLC in the statewide competition to qualify for a $500 cash stipend for educational expenses for the fall 2010 semester.
