You just got elected president. What’s your first Tweet?” (2017), or “Weighing the expected investment and return, is college worth it for you? Why?”(2016). Students must include name and contact information, background details, academic details, and a short original, previously unpublished written response to the writing scholarship topic, and submit before the end of December.
