Kennedy Center announces results of first annual essay contest

Brigham Young University's David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies has announced the results of its first annual essay contest.

Students were given the choice of three topics to address, and the papers were then read and ranked by four professors from four different disciplines.

First place and $500 was awarded to "External Debt and the Developing World: Problems and Solutions" written by Kent E. Freeze, a sophomore economics major.

Second and third place each received $250: "America's Hard Condition: Constraints on Multilateral Intervention" by Camille M. Jackson, a sophomore, and "American Hegemony and the Balance of Power: the European Reaction" by Milton A. Haws, a junior, both of whom are political science majors.

All three students will present an overview of their essays at an awards reception Thursday, Nov. 20, at 11 a.m. in 238 Herald R. Clark Building along with the unveiling of the 2002-03 photo gallery.

The three essays will also be posted on the Kennedy Center Web site at http://kennedy.byu.edu/publications/essay. The photo gallery will also be online at http://kennedy.byu.edu/publications/photo.

Both the essay and photo contests were held in conjunction with International Education Week Nov. 17-21 sponsored by the David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies.
