Student global affairs blogger wins iPad from David M. Kennedy Center

A Brigham Young University student won a new iPad for participating in the Live Blogging Competition held by the David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies during winter and spring semesters.

In this competition, students were invited to read The New York Times daily and blog about their personal views on current events. Taylor Shippen, an international relations major and the winner of the new iPad, shared his opinions and questions on drone diplomacy, the Syrian conflict and unemployment in Europe.  

“If American producers are benefiting from an increase in world coal prices, then China has not just come and ‘taken’ our heritage, we chose to sell it to them.” Shippen wrote in his blog. “Making China the whipping boy for our domestic problems will only hurt trade between our two countries unnecessarily.”

During fall semester 2013, students across campus are invited to join the conversation and share their views on what is going on in the world today. Participants will read The New York Times and blog their thoughts to be eligible to win a new iPad.

To register for the competition, send an email to IAS301@gmail.com.
