The Association for Conflict Resolution of Greater New York Student Writing Competition
The Association for Conflict Resolution of Greater New York (ACR-GNY), a regional chapter of The Association for Conflict Resolution (ACR) which is dedicated to enhancing the practice and public understanding of effective conflict resolution, is sponsoring a student writing competition. The purpose of the competition is to increase interest in the field of conflict resolution and to enrich the alternative dispute resolution community with the energy and talent of those completing scholarly research at various academic levels.
This year’s conference theme is “Mainstreaming Creative Conflict Resolution,” and submissions should meaningfully address the question of broadening the reach and practice of alternative dispute resolution, but this need not be the sole focal point of the paper.
To be eligible for the competition, students must be enrolled in a school in Connecticut, New Jersey, New York or Pennsylvania, or have a permanent residence in Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, or Pennsylvania.
Each entrant may submit only one essay, and entrants must submit their work by Sunday, May 12, 2013 to qualify for the competition.
A first-place prize winner may be awarded for the best paper within each category (Undergraduate, Graduate, and Law), and each winner will receive $250, free admission to the 2013 ACR-GNY Annual Conference, an invitation to present his or her work at the conference, and a one-year membership to ACR-GNY. Additional entries may also be recognized for Honorable Mention.
