AETNA Celebration of Student Writing

Now Accepting Submissions: 2020 AETNA Student Writing Poster Fair & Showcase

Present your writing or writing-related research in the AETNA Celebration of Student Writing for the chance to win cash prizes. This event is open to UConn undergraduate students (individual and group presentations).

The Aetna Celebration of Student Writing (ACSW) is an annual UConn event held by the Aetna Chair of Writing to showcase student writing work and writing-related research. Students present their writing work completed in writing-intensive UConn courses (First-Year Writing, “W” courses) and/or research on the subject of writing, rhetoric, or a related topic. Individual and group projects are accepted.

The ACSW opens with a poster fair, where students present their work first to a circulating panel of faculty judges and then to the public. The judges create awards based on the selection of projects that are presented each year. The poster fair awards are then announced at the reception that follows.

Takes place: Apr. 27, 3-5:30pm

Storrs Campus, Wilbur Cross, North Reading Room

Submission Deadline: Apr. 1, 2020
