Call for nominations: GREEK ORTHODOX COMMUNITY OF SA INC. - CON MARINOS AM PRIZES

for an outstanding undergraduate student essay related to

  • ethnicity
  • racism
  • human rights
  • multiculturalism
  • social justice

Nominations are called for the award of two Greek Orthodox Community of SA Inc - Con Marinos AM Prizes (undergraduate prizes). Each prize has a value of $500.

Each of the annual prizes will be awarded for an outstanding essay submitted for assessment during either semester of the academic year by a student enrolled in an undergraduate degree in either of the two sponsoring Faculties or in the cross-Faculty Bachelor of Arts. One of the prizes will be awarded for an essay submitted for a topic in the Faculty of Education, Humanities and Law and the other for an essay submitted for a topic in the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences.

The essay must be on ‘a subject related to one of the following areas: ethnicity, racism, human rights, multiculturalism or social justice’; must have a maximum word length of 4,500 words and must have received a High Distinction (HD).  The work must be identical in content to that presented for the topic though a clean copy of the work should be provided rather than the assessed copy.

The prizes will be awarded to the best submission in each Faculty which meets these criteria, based on the selection committee’s independent judgement about the merit of the work. No prize will be awarded if the committee decides that there is no submission of sufficient merit.

The essay, together with the coversheet available below, must be submitted to Ms Olga Pinto, Coordinator, Course and Topic Management (email olga.pinto@flinders.edu.au, phone 8201 3793), EHL Faculty, Room 4.18, 4th Floor, Education Building, by 5 pm Friday 13 November 2015.
