Texas State Updates: Essay Contest

Texas State CAMCO
sponsoring essay contest

Cancer affects nearly everyone at one time or another. For some, it’s the experience of a family member or friend battling the disease. For others, it’s the focus of intensive research, or volunteer efforts. And there also are the personal stories, of living with and surviving cancer.

The Cancer Advocacy Movement for Colleges and Outreach at Texas State wants to hear all those stories. This spring, CAMCO is sponsoring an essay contest with the theme “What Does Cancer Mean to You?”

The competition, with prizes of $300 for first place, $200 for second and $100 for third, is open to full-time Texas State students. Essays are limited to 750 words.

Entries should be sent by e-mail attachment to Dr. Lawrence Estaville, lestaville@txstate.edu, by March 1. Writing will be judged on the topic, creativity, understanding, and style and grammar.

Winners may read their essays at the 2011 Cancer Survivors Panel and Remembrance, March 30 on campus.
For information, see the Texas State CAMCO website.
