The Department of Developmental Studies is holding an essay contest for students who attended the Punxsutawney campus of IUP.
The department is giving a $500 prize to a student who participated in the Developmental Studies First-Year Experience program at the Punxsutawney campus and who has achieved success as a college student. The contest is open to students with over 90 credits who started at the Punxsutawney campus and were enrolled in classes taught by the Department of Developmental Studies.
The contest requires students to write a one-page essay highlighting the impact their first year had on their college experience. Essays are due by April 16, 2018, to 203A Pratt Hall. The winner will be selected by faculty and staff, and portions of their essay will be included on the Developmental Studies website.
