Anniversary essay competition (Sponsored by The Times)


As one of a series of events to mark the fiftieth anniversary of women receiving degrees from the University, an essay competition has been organized for Cambridge University undergraduates. Under the title 'What have women done for Cambridge?', the contest challenges today's Cambridge undergraduates (both men and women) to articulate the impact that women have had on the University. The contest is sponsored by The Times, and the winner will receive £500 and two weeks' work experience on the newspaper. Details for entries are as follows:

1. The deadline for entries is 28 September 1998.

2. The competition is open to all undergraduates at the University of Cambridge (both men and women).

3. The maximum entry length is 3,000 words. All entries must be word-processed and four copies must be submitted. Entries must be anonymous; entrants must not include their name on any page of the entry. Instead, entries should include a title page marked with a motto, and be accompanied by a sealed envelope containing the entrant's name and College, marked clearly on the outside with the same motto. Entries and queries should be addressed to Dr Felicity Hunt, University Offices, General Board Division, The Old Schools, Trinity Lane, Cambridge, CB2 1TT. (Queries: mfh3@admin.cam.ac.uk.)

4. The essays will be judged by Ms Valerie Grove (The Times), Professor Jill Mann (Faculty of English and Girton College), and Dr Gillian Sutherland (Faculty of History and Newnham College).

5. The prize will be presented on 4 December 1998, the end of the anniversary year.
