Open to all undergraduates in the College of Arts and Sciences.
Selected students receive a $250 cash prize and are recognized at the A&S Awards Ceremony in June.
Details for the Scholastic Competition process are published each spring quarter.
A panel of judges including two to three professors (one from each disciplinary category) and one student judge from the Student Executive Council will choose the top three works and possibly honorable mentions.
