Winners of “Education of the Whole Soul” competition to be announced Jan. 19

Brigham Young University’s Office of First-Year Experience and The Education in Zion gallery will formally announce the winners of “An Education of the Whole Soul” artistic competition Tuesday, Jan. 19, at 7 p.m. in the Education in Zion theatre, B-192 Joseph F. Smith Building.

Winning students, friends, family and members of the community are invited to attend. The event will also feature BYU Academic Vice President John S. Tanner.

The competition, introduced in October, prompted first-year students to reflect upon their reading of “Learning in the Light of Faith,” the text for the BYU Summer Reading Program, and subsequent tour of the Education in Zion gallery during New Student Orientation. They were asked to represent their reflections through written works, visual arts or performance art pieces.

“The goal in sponsoring this competition was to encourage students to think about how academics, spiritual development and discipleship are connected, and how they combine to provide an education for the whole soul “said Ann Lambson, Education in Zion curator. “We then asked them to take another step and express their thoughts through creative means.”

There is a $500 award for first-place winners in each category. Honorable mentions will receive $50.

For more information, contact the Education in Zion Information Desk at (801) 422-6519 or visit educationinzion.byu.edu.
