Can you write an essay on Chinese art, history, or culture that's worth a $600 cash prize? The New York Chinese Opera Society Essay Competition is open to Pace students. Submissions due by noon on March 15.
The New York Chinese Opera Society (NYCOS) is proud to announce that it is now accepting submissions for its annual essay contest. The 4th New York Chinese Opera Society Essay Competition, co-sponsored by the Confucius Institute and Global Asian Studies Program at Pace University, is open to all students at Pace. The purpose of the contest is to spurn more in-depth research in Chinese culture and increase the interest and participation of Pace students in Chinese cultural studies.
Essays can be on any topic related to Chinese art, history, or culture. Past winners have written about such topics as Daoism, the Great Wall, Chinese cinema, and women in Chinese society. Applicants should submit only one essay, ten to twelve pages (excluding the title page and bibliography), double-spaced with a 12 point font, completely documented with references, carefully proofread, and following a standard form such as MLA, APA, or Chicago. Entries should include the attached submission form, complete with a signature from the Pace faculty member who is nominating the essay for the competition as well as from the chair of the department that the student represents. Submissions must be made via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org by 12:00 noon on Saturday, March 15, 2014 in order to be considered. Previous awardees will not be eligible.
The essays will be evaluated by a committee, who will recommend the best three essays to the New York Chinese Opera Society for awards.
The winners will be recognized at the annual President’s Scholarship Dinner in April. Winners will be notified ahead of time and must attend the ceremony. The first place winner will receive a $600 cash prize while the 2nd and 3rd place finalists will receive $300 and $200 respectively.
