Global Connections Art and Essay Contest Submissions are due!

November 26, 2017

Global Connections is offering two contests exclusively for Global Campus students this semester. Each contest centers around this year’s common reading book, Ready Player One, and has a cash prize of $500.

  • Artist Award
    The tangible and virtual worlds inhabited by Wade Watts, protagonist of this year’s common reading book Ready Player One, contain a variety of characters, environments, scenes and objects both grounded in grim reality and the fantastic world of the OASIS.
    We invite you to create an artistic rendering of your choice related to this year’s common reading book for an opportunity to win a $500 award. Learn more about the Artist Award
  • Essay Contest
    In the future when Ready Player One takes place, Wade Watts attends a public school in the virtual reality of the OASIS. Education in the OASIS mimics the classic “classroom” setting while utilizing the innovation and controls of technology. You are invited to examine the future application and effects of a virtual reality based educational system in an essay of up to 750 words. The essay with the most creative, compelling content will win a $500 cash prize. Learn more about the Essay Contest
