Second Annual Star of Davida Essay Contest!

Posted on the 16 November 2012 by Starofdavida
I am thrilled to announce the Second Annual Star of Davida Essay Contest!
I established the Essay Contest last year because I noticed a serious lack of feminist-themed writing competitions. Although I’ve found a few in the past year, the number is not anywhere nearly as high as it should be. Regardless, the Star of Davida Essay Contest is now in its second year and accepting submissions!
Description: The theme was inspired by the Tumblr Who Needs Feminism?. Answer the question “Why do you need feminism?” To end double standards? To increase your sense of self-worth? To ensure that you feel safe when you walk alone at night? Go crazy with your response, so long as it’s between 200 - 800 words.
How to Enter: Send your essay as a doc, docx, or PDF file to starofdavida@gmail.com. If there’s a technical issue with your entry, I’ll be in touch - don’t worry. In the subject line, please write “Essay Contest” or something to that effect. On the top of the first page, include your full name, school year, and email address.
Deadline: February 28, 2013
Eligibility: Any and all students (from preschool to a PhD program) who are feminists can enter.
Awards: The top three winners will each win a copy of Julie Zeilinger’s debut book A Little F’d Up: Why Feminism Is Not a Dirty Word. The winning essays will also be published on Star of Davida!
Please direct any questions you have to starofdavida@gmail.com. Happy writing!
