About the Competition
We know that BYU students—and Kennedy Center students, in particular—are interested in the world outside of campus, Provo, and the United States. We also have provided free New York Times copies and encouraged students to read widely–with a particular focus on international news.
That’s why are excited to announce the continuation of our New York Times blogging contest. Its pretty simple—read the New York Times, blog about it here on kennedylive.wordpress.com and win a new iPad. (Other prizes will be given out as well, including copies of the Book of the Semester and cool Kennedy Center stuff.)
Our hope is to foster intelligent discussions—using the New York Times as a tool for informed debate at BYU.
- Only full-time BYU students are eligible but we encourage participate across majors and colleges.
- Timeframe: Fall Semester 2016
- Bloggers will be evaluated on the quality and quantity of posts and comments. Blog posts carry more weight but students who consistently contribute to conversations on the blog will be awarded higher consideration.
- The Kennedy Center reserves the right to edit, block, or remove any comment or blogger that is deemed uncivil, offensive, crude, or not virtuous, lovely or of good report. Engage, disagree, and debate–but do it with mutual respect and civility.
Thanks, and we look forward to an informed, engaging, global conversation.
–The David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies
